Ride or walk by the bay!

Great place to walk or ride a bike and get away from all the activities by the piers. I suggest a nice sunny day but a rainy day with right clothes, the space can clear the mind.

I can highly recommend this bit of the SF waterfront. There is a Safeway supermarket at the eastern end with a great deli for sandwiches, and the walk along the shore front to Crissy Fields is very interesting (many fine homes to look at as you walk!)

This is a windy city and often colder then tourist expect. Layers is key! This walk is so lovely no matter your age- I would say magical. A must do.

Great recreational area with lots of runners, walkers, bikes etc. The view to the bay and Golden Gate is stunning, and the Promenade is well worth the walk.

It was a gloriously hot day when we decided to walk to the Golden Gate bridge, we took the promenade and it's really lovely, lots of people walking, jogging and cycling and just generally having a good time and taking in the views.

This was a set from Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" where James Stuart saves the life of Kim Novak after she jumps into the bay here. Crashing waves, sounds of the bay, a romantic place, with fisherman casting their lines into the bay. San Francisco is for lovers!

Loved this area, in the waterfront with 5 stars view plus famous Golden Gate Bridge. Any afternoon or morning for you to enjoy. Walking, biking, or sit around on bench. So nice and wonderful!

The views are beautiful, we were chilly but exhilarated until we realized that despite the fog and wind we had become lobster red with sunburn. I love how much fun the dogs are all having. San Franciscans love their dogs, who are very much in evidence.

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.
