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...

We walked along the part from from the Beach Hut cafè to Hyde Street peir on sunny but chilly afternoon. Plenty of benches to sit on along the way as my wife has difficultly walking but we made it to Fort Mason in the end & the local Safeway shop for some lunch. You get some lovely views of the... More

After a day of walking around town, I enjoyed sitting down and resting while enjoying the great view. The Golden Gate Bridge and the sunset were great, the view of San Francisco were cool too. It's a little far from the rest of the city but you can take a bus and just enjoy the ride. :)

This was one of my favorite parts of the trip. The walking path along the waterfront is so nice and scenic, and makes for a nice walk or run. There were a lot of windsurfers and kite surfers when we were there, and it was a lot of fun to sit by the beach and watch them set up and... More
