We have just spent the day at the Presidio. We visited the Disney Museum earlier in the week and discovered that there is a free shuttle from Downtown plus around the whole park. So today we went back. The free down town shuttle starts near the corner of Drumm and Washington and leaves every half hour. This connects to the... More

Must visit the new Presidio Inn. Great place to stay if you want a quiet out of the way location. The hikes and views are so beautiful and the historic buildings. Definitely a new and exciting part of the city.

Went to a wedding here and fell in love with the place. So pretty! Great place for pictures. There are lots of hiking trails. Great views of the Pacific, Alcatraz, and the City.

Loved the Presidio--- lots of hiking trails, Baker Beach is beautiful, views aplenty. Check out 1 Letterman Drive if you're a Star Wars fan! Awesome Yoda Fountain in front of the Lucas Headquarters, which you can go in and look around the lobby at memorabilia of the movies for free. Just tell the guard at the gate that you're there...

1500 acres. Those who were stationed here when it was a active military post sure had a beautiful place to be. Since the Trust took over they have been slowly making the steps for adaptive reuse. Not always an easy process but if done right can be outstanding.

"The Spire" is the most well known because it is in a prominent place in the park, just above inspiration point on Arguello Blvd. the second is "Tree Line" which is... More

The San Francisco coast has many bunkers with cannons (much like the coast of Normandy) to protect it from an invasion from the sea. These bunkers are over 100 years old and in different levels of decay. This area is great for a hike and offers a spectacular view. If you are looking for a place to take the kids... More

Our chilly December visit was warmed by outstanding scenery and living history all around this outlying quadrant of San Francisco. My intrepid brother's Prius transported us around the toney St Francis Yacht club and checked out the America's Cup race clubhouse. From the Crissy Field trailhead we trekked right up underneath the Golden Gate Bridge at Fort Point. Gene Roddenberry's... More

Visit the Presidio! We spent an entire morning hiking from the main parade field along the promenade out onto the Golden Gate Bridge (food and bathrooms available here), along the batteries on the coast above Baker Beach and back through the base. We were here for a little less than three hours and had a terrific hike. Visiting from the... More
