Tips from locals
One of my favorite spots in SF! Take the dog, kids, picnic and walk right up to the golden gate. You could even walk or ride a bike over it from this place. Lovely beaches, a cafe and an old fort are some of the other attractions. You can often see seals, dolphins and sharks swimming about here…
A wonderful place to go for a stroll, with some of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge you will see. The Warming Hut at the end nearest the Bridge is a great place to get food and has a wonderful gift shop with unique items.
Favorite beach nearby. Parking available. Dog beach. Bathrooms on site. This is also a starting point for a trail to walk all the way to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Sandy beach & kitesurfing hotspot with a Golden Gate bridge backdrop, picnic tables & a promenade. Great place to take a long walk and see the amazing Golden Gate Bridge in the back drop!
Gorgeous historical area. There's park land, beaches, Fort Point, a climbing wall, trampoline house, great visitor's center and beautiful views. Crissy Field Beach has very gentle waves so it's safer to go in the water. Do stay with your kids, though, there are drops beneath the water. We've spent…

“Beautiful (and easy) hiking trail overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Pick a sunny day for the views although I also love the misty fog or as we call him, Karl the Fog! He even has his own instagram @KarlTheFog ”

“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”

“Rent a bike from a bike shop around Pier 39 and bike across the Golden Gate bridge. Or drive over to hike Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands. The 3 mile hike will reward you with 360 views of San Francisco. ”
