“Great Trails and History”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We only travelled the outskirts of this park as we specifically went to Industrial Light & Magic to get a picture with the Yoda Fountain but we read a lot of the history on the various signs on route to Crissy Field (the long way - going from the North East side of the Presidio to the South West side of Crissy FIelds). We saw trails and if we had time, we would have totally taken them. Would definitely come back here to explore more.

“We want to go back!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

We were killing some time, driving and sightseeing before checking into our hotel, when by luck we drove into the entrance to the Presidio. What a beautiful open space next to a busy city. We took many photos near the water and Golden Gate. We came back on a different day for the Disney Museum.

“A haven of tranquility”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I spent half a day just walking around and admiring how it had been sympathetically transformed from the Army base to this beautiful park in San Francisco. 10 out of 10 to SF, nicely done.

“Too low on your list”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Presidio is a worthwhile spot. It is absolutely beautifully and form there you can walk all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge, a memorable promenade.

Glad you enjoyed your time here! Some of the best views are from near the Golden Gate Bridge, however, some of the most peaceful quiet spaces are right in the heart of the Presidio on one of our many trails. Happy exploring!
