  • The Battery Spencer is a great location to get a birds eye view of the notoriously famous Golden Gate Bridge. It’s amazing!

  • I just love this view point. Being able to see the golden gate from a fairly close perspective is nice. Coming here at sunset is just breathtaking. The views are nice, I’d say it can be very windy but you’re by the water so it’s expected. Just prepare for it to be cold at times. This is a very heavily trafficked area since the views are immaculate but if you’re able to make it at sunrise and claim your spot before others you’ll be able to experience such a beautiful view. Parking can kinda be a struggle but if you don’t mind walking a ways for a view then you’re be okay. Overall I’d say if you’re ever nearby definitely give this place a visit and don’t forget to take some pictures!
  • One of the best spots to view the Golden Gate Bridge and the bay. There is limited parking but people do come in and out often. You will have to take a winding road up to get to the parking spot. A warning, there are signs posted everywhere near the parking for smash and grab thefts. To be careful and bring all your valuables with you. You will be quite a bit away from your vehicle. If you want a nice view and be near your car then there is a parking area earlier that you can stop at take pictures right near your car. To get to this point at Battery Spencer, it’s a small trek up a gradual hill, maybe a 5 minute walk if you are taking your time. From here you will have an amazing view of the entire bridge! There is also a fence that have love locks attached, so if you like this idea, plan to bring one.
