Walk along the bay

There are lots of places to see the Golden Gate Bridge and some sports are better than others. This is a popular trail along the bay, worth doing early in the morning.

Get up early at first light and walk toward the bridge to take great pictures while it's perfectly lit by the sun. It's great early and crowded with lots of people once it gets a bit later in the am!

On the Golden Gate Promenade! It's a great place to take a stroll in the city by the bay. You will get the best views of any walk in the country.

We walked the entire length of the promenade when we walked from Fisherman's Wharf right across the Golden Gate Bridge to Vista Point and then all the way back (well almost!). We really enjoyed the walk, apart from all the inconsiderate cyclists on the route, and felt like we had accomplished something when we completed it.

The Promenade is a great place to walk around, stick your toes in the bay, and see the Golden Gate Bridge from below. (Marin Headlands is a great view from above.) From there, you are also right by Fort Point, Crissy Field, and you can see Alcatraz and the Palace of Fine Arts. It's just a really nice place to... More

The Golden Gate Promenade provides great views of the Famous Golden Gate Bridge ! This area will provide great photo shots of the bridge. Early or late in the day the views are grand !

Nice place with perfect (but still not the best - for best ones go to the other side of the bay) views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The views are stunning and it's a lovely leisurely walk shared with cyclists. Nice in the morning when there aren't too many people - sit, relax and watch the world go by.

The exciting thing is when you see the bridge clearer and larger as you bike along the way closer and closer. The beach, the green spaces, the waves, the seagulls, people enjoying the area, all of these attractions are unforgettable. I think biking with walking is more fun as the distance is long for walking alone.

If you're one for long walks/cycling/running and scenic views, spending some time at the Golden Gate Promenade is definitely worth your while. If you're not too fond of long walks, but want a good photo of the bridge, this is a good place to take some. (Definitely bring your camera if you like photographing.) What's not to love about a...

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
