Definitely a "cool place " to go. As living in the central valley, we decided to leave the heat for cooler temps of the bay. A great vantage point to see the bridge. Weekdays are great for Covid "Social Distancing" as it wasn't crowed and plenty of parking. This was a first stop of three to get different views of the bridge.

Within the Presidio compound is Fort Point. Tours on a self guided basis are available. Fort Point is military out post during the Civil War. It's design is Spanish Colonial. Headphones are provided for tours at a minimal cost in the visitors area. Definite check it out while visiting the Golden Gate and Presidio park grounds.

You can just think of what this fort was like back in the Civil War days. It was very lucky that they were able to save this fort while they were building the Golden Gate Bridge.

We got to San Fran late afternoon and I'm so glad we made it to this point before the sunset. It wasn't too crowded and it was a amazing site to see at that time of day. I can see us returning to this point on our next trip.

I grew up in San Francisco and highly recommend this historic Fort Point Site. Not only is it Free, but you will enjoy An incredible view of the Bay, see the Golden Gate Bridge underneath as well as up close. Inside the historical Fort Point you will get to review many photos of the soldiers and Indians that were around at that time. The sleeping quarters, along with memorabilia showing the beautiful San Francisco history. My youngest Grandson at the age of 9 loved it. It’s an adventure walking all over, up the stairwells and when you get to the top...magic..the San Francisco Bay awaits you. You might be lucky on aSaturday to see the volunteers that dress up for the era..it really is a must see.
