Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

512 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.
$38.00 per adult

The Korean War is seldom talked about as we get further away from the 1950's. Yet the numbers of casualties from this war is staggering. This memorial offers a bit of history concerning the circumstances and events of the Korean War. Unless you are specifically looking for the memorial it could be easily missed. It is located across the street and downhill east of the entrance to the National Cemetery and is accessed by a short path.

My father served in Korea, yet told me very little of his time there. So now I take time to learn, to remember the sacrifices. I try to visit memorials like the one here in the Presidio. Located close to the National Cemetery, this memorial is well kept and includes a lot of facts and history. Worth taking the time to visit.

Located right across the street from the National Cemetery, the memorial was a small but detail packed about the Korean War. The large curved wall in the right shows various images from the war. The displays on left summarized the war’s back and forth across Korea and ending at the current DMZ line. The memorial was also nicely landscaped with views of the bay and made this one of the nicest memorials to contemplate and recognize the efforts of those involved.

Great way to commemorate the scarifies of war heros who fought in the Forgotten War. Well documented history helps visitors understand what it was like during the tough times. The cleanliness of this place, indicates how important & respected this memorial is to people around.

We took a taxi from town to the Presido to visit this memorial, but the taxi driver was not aware of it, even though he mentioned that he had a brother that fought in the Korean War. It is a small park located at the North east corner of the Presido, at the intersection of Sheridan Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard. The entrance to the San Fransisco Cemetery is opposite the memorial. Two walls, with the name Korean Memorial on the right wall are at the entrance on Sheridan Avenue.The main feature of the memorial, is a gently curved wall to your immediate right on entry. The wall faces west in the direction of Korea.On the right side of the wall, there is a United Nations emblem at the top, and a list of the countries that participated in the Korean war below.The curved wall has images and information on the Korean War. There are two storyboards at the entrance and opposite the curved memorial wall that provide additional information on the "forgotten" war of 1950-1953. The park itself is quite small with a few sitting areas, but beautifully maintained, with a traditional asian garden layout. We found the round trip fare of $42 quite reasonable, as this included a wait for photos. We were heading to South Korea a few hours later, and I thought that this visit would provide a better understanding and appreciation of the war. At the Presido, there are additional photo opportunities with cannons, military buildings and other monuments in the cemetery on portal drive (opposite the memorial).
