What a great place to walk or bike. Just remember that the wind blows off the water and some days it's really quite cold here. Bring something long sleeve just in case. If you forget there's a café along here to get a coffee and warm up!

One of the most beautiful places in San Francisco. Whether it's foggy or crystal clear, you'll love hanging out here. It's NEVER hot and there's always an amazing view.

Beautiful way to spend a sunny afternoon, but bring a jacket! Weather in SF can change and although it's hot one minute, a cool breeze may strike the next! Especially as you get closer to the bridge. Clearly outlined bike paths make the promenade very accessible and safe, especially for people like me who are a bit anxious about bike-riding... More

One of the most beautiful coastal walks in the SF Bay Area. I love to come here and walk along the shore, watching the birds and the dogs and taking in the sea breeze. I always find it completely restorative. Highly recommended.

You can see great views of the Golden Gate bridge and the bay on a clear day. Great place to relax and see the sail boats on the bay.

I visited this place in December of 2014. It is so beautiful that words cannot describe its beauty. If you love walking, this is a must for you. Regardless, you get to see the best views from the Golden Gate Bridge and the entire San Francisco Bay in a unique way. I have never seen anything so beautiful in my... More

We took a bus across the bride and waited for our kids and grand kids to walk across the bridge. There is plenty of parking if you decide to drive. There are several insteresting statues there and bathrooms. You can sit on the stone wall or walk around and enjoy a full circle of beautiful views. It is not as... More

We cycled from Fisherman's Wharf to the Golden Gate and enjoyed the views from the Promenade. Lots of places to stop off and just sit on beach and gaze at the Golden Gate. If you have a dog, great place to walk.

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.
