A perfect point of view, San Francisco

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Lands End Lookout opened to rave reviews last summer. If it’s foggy, you can duck into the polished redwood-and-concrete visitor center to learn about the Ohlone people who once lived here, see photos of the old Playland park, or buy a cup of clam chowder.
