I often forget about this particular little hidden gem. If you're a person who likes to get in touch with nature in a surrounding that isn't saturated with people, this is your spot. It's location is convenient, as it's located near the intersect of two...More
Just up above the Old Town area. Great little walk to raise your heart rate and burn off some of that lunch.
Too bad the trees have grown on the north side and are blocking the views.......
If you don't want to make the drive...More
A nice park to walk around. Great views and I can imagine how beautiful it must of been in the early years before freeways and buildings.
Right near old town. Near Mission Hills which is also a beautiful area to live.
Presidio Park has multiple areas there is the cross with the statue of Father Sierra which is normally reserved for weddings. There are areas for sports and cooking and just resting in the sun.lose from11pm to 8 am.
There's a path you can access from Old Town San Diego (which is of course also worth a visit) that seems to have been created some time ago. It has markers with bits of information on them but some of them have worn away and...More
I've been going to Presidio Park for my entire life. It is a beautiful setting on a long hillside. the road to the top winds through the trees and open grass areas. There are several somewhat steep areas. Kids love them but may be difficult...More

This was a lookout point of great military value and that can clearly be understood from the view. You could easily see a fleet or an army approaching. The grounds need work. It's a climb from old town that's worth the effort if you've got...More
I really think a car or bike would help it is hilly

Ferry out, bridge back? (2 Replies)
I'll be arriving in SF at around 3pm Tuesday 15th July. I'll have driven from yosemite so don't want to be rushing about and clock watching etc so thought it'd be nice to cycle over the GG bridge and explore the Presidio park area on this first afternoon until around 7.30 pm before heading out for the evening. I was planning on on cycling over the bridge then getting the ferry back but that was until I realised the ferry goes to the wharf area and I'd really like to end my day in Presidio (as...More

Probably not feasible to take the ferry if you are getting into town at 3pm. You'll need time to get to the ferry pier, make the trip across, rent bike. Those steps will take a couple of hours. The uphill is the same in both directions. You have to go from sea level to the bridge deck (250 vertical feet) either way. I'd cycle the bridge out and back, that way you can turn around at any time, and set the length of your journey as your time and energy allow.
Second trip to San Francisco (2 Replies)
My husband and I spent 7 days in San Francisco visiting my sister and her husband that are living in the city for a year. So we stayed at there apartment in the Inner Richmond district. Since we've been to SF once before we didn't do all the first time sightseeing again. We did however enjoy the earthquake (8 scoops of ice cream and lots of toppings) at Ghiradelli's and had a clam chowder at Boudin's. On our trip we visited Sausalito where we had a lunch from a combined Italian store...More

We are going to be staying in Muir Beach and plan a day trip to San Francisco by car. Which is the best option 1) Leave the car in Sausalito and go across on the Ferry. ( Is it difficult and or expensive to find parking space?) 2) Take the car to Presidio park and get a bus from there to Fisherman's Wharf? (is this a viable/cheaper option?) All helpful information appreciated.

Don't know. What do you want to do and see in SF? How late are you planning to stay? Just one day in SF?
