A former military installation has been turned into a special events center in the modern age. It works well. Next to the Bay.

Fort Mason wasn't anything entirely too special, but there was lots of parking away from the street, and it's right next to the ocean!

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.
