Rent a Bike and see the Bay

Rented a bike at "Blazing Saddles" and rode through the promenade, over the Golden Gate Bridge and all the way to Tiburon across the bay

This promenade offers an amazing view of the bay, including the golden gate and "the rock" It is a nice place to go for a long walk , or just hang around to see the sun come up behind the city!

Actually you can walk, jog, bike, take the dog or amble along this nice views scape along the bay front. Stay by the yacht harbor area or venture into the Presidio and beyond. Take your jacket & little umbrella "just in case." SF weather is totally unpredictable as you'll discover! Enjoy. ...

Really pleasant walk and bike ride. Go there every morning and you'll take care of many aspects of your life: health (for the exercise), mind (great place to think about things and cool down), connecting with nature and even socializing since dogs are always a great source of conversation with strangers.

Really nice cycle to the bridge and great for pictures of the bridge. Various stopping points for a break. Watch out for the serious cyclists hurtling towards you though. Can get busy with walkers, joggers, bikes and dogs so try and keep to the correct lanes.

As we did walk on the promenade there was a sign telling us that this was a gift of two citizens of the city. I hope the do not see how it looks like now, its more like a of the grid car park. Not a Nice promenade as you should expect. Sad to see...

We spent 2+ hours walking from Chestnut Street, through the Presidio (Walt Disney Museum, National War Cemetery, civil war barracks, etc) to the Golden Gate Bridge. You may prefer to rent bikes and bike this, then bike across the bridge if you want. The walk was long (in a drizzle the whole time) and it was too foggy to see... More

Stumbled on this place and spent a superb day watching the blue angels with my wife. There was a lovely young lady there too who made our day extra special with her dog buster giving us the low down on the area and what to expect. Also when the other photographers thought the day was over she knew there was... More

A nice walk alongside the coastline with the beauty of the Golden Gate bridge, Alcatraz, the 'pathes' the well kept area, and the sudden arrival of seals, pelicans, sea-gulls - mixed up with a local touch of those 'always there' - local fisherpeople with their rods and chairs - showing the good life, the joggers, the bycyclists - and the...

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.
