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.

If the Blue Angels ever comes back to the Bay, please do not waste your money for an expensive ticket. Go to the Promenade, the Blue Angels will just be in front of your eyes and above you.

We cycled along Golden Gate Promenade to get to the Bridge itself. It was a very pleasant ride, plenty of room for both bikes and pedestrians. The scenery of the bay is fantastic as well and you can get some great photos of the golden gate bridge as well as Alcatraz island.

We hired bikes from Fisherman's Wharf and rode the promenade all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. The promenade offered some great views of the bay and bridge, and it was great to see everybody out enjoying the morning sun and getting some fresh air. Great way to spend the morning!

You can walk, run or bike on this path with excellent views of the Golden Gate and the Bay. We rented bicycles, passed by and took pictures on our way to the Golden Gate and Sausalito! You can spend less than hour here. I recommend it!

Loved walking along the shore and watching the ships sail by. Good vantage point to see the fog come rolling in.

The Promenade has great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the sailboarders in the Bay. Not much else to do here.

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.
