We took the bus over to Treasure Island during the day and - as forewarned by our hotel concierge - there weren't a lot of places to see or things to do. The docent manning the Admiral Wilson Building was very helpful, and the building itself was rather interesting. We walked up California Avenue and ate at the Oasis Grille...a... More

For the best city lights views of the city, the bridge, nothing beats those from Treasure Island, best done at night on a clear day. You can also see the new Bay Bridge extension from here. WOW!

In January 1956 I was stationed on Treasure Island. I attended Electronics Technician school. While going to the school building, on the west side of the island, I was treated to a view I will always remember. The sun came up over the Oakland hills and the city of San Francisco shown like gold. The reflection from the windows in... More

Treasure Island offers a beautiful view of San Francisco, especially at night. It's a quaint small place to sample wine and tour an old military base.

No toll charges to drive from SF across first half of Bay Bridge to Yerba Buena and Treasure Island. The summer Flea market was one of better ones to explore. Stunning views to west toward The City. Parking free, views billion dollar. Surprising how few folks know to travel here, and not just across the Golden Gate Bridge, to enjoy... More

Go to Treasure Island during sunset on a clear day and get rewarded with beautiful views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the Bay Bridge. Beautiful sunset views from the viewing point. It was really windy too!

Did you know that “Treasure Island” was built originally for the “World’s Fair” or that this was once occupied by the United States Army and Navy? This was also originally planned for the “San Francisco Airport” before the military swapped it for “Mills Field” along the San Francisco Peninsula near the city of Millbrae? A lot of “tourists” who have... More
