An Ideal Day In The Marina: Besides its excellent shopping and plethora of dining options, Marina residents enjoy a wonderful lifestyle. On a Sunday morning, savor a latte & newspaper on Chestnut Street, explore the Palace of Fine Arts, enjoy postcard views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay, and Alcatraz along the Marina Green, and finish with dinner and a movie in a palace-style movie house. More neighborhood options include live theater, museums, Moscone Playground, or miles of gorgeous paths & trails inside the Presidio.
Crissy Field: Crissy Field has been transformed from one of the country's most important and active military airstrips into the recent crowning achievement of the Golden Gate National Parks Association. The GGNPA created a space that synthesizes recreational public space with environmental restoration. Walkers and joggers have embraced the field's shoreline path, known as the Golden Gate Promenade, and on sunny days, kids, picnickers and Frisbee enthusiasts blanket the grassy 28-acre expanse. Cyclists have their own bike-only path, and when the wind is good, world-class sailboarders can be seen skipping and soaring across the water. On the environmental end, huge portions of Crissy Field's original airstrip have been pulled up to allow for the restoration of 20 acres of original tidal marshland.
Fort Mason: Like Crissy Field, Fort Mason is a former military enclave now protected under the auspices of the Golden Gate National Parks Association. The Fort Mason center provides a wealth of cultural and educational societies, museums & nonprofits, including the San Francisco African American Historical and Cultural Society, Long Now Foundation Museum and Store, and the Museu ItaloAmericano. Fort Mason also hosts numerous performances, festivals and exhibits throughout the year.
Palace of Fine Arts: Created as the landmark building for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the Palace of Fine Arts is indisputably the Marina's architectural grand dame. Though the structure was specifically designed to honor the completion of the Panama Canal, it was a symbol to the City -- and to the world -- that San Francisco had overcome and risen above the catastrophe of the 1906 earthquake and its consuming fire. Today the Palace of Fine Arts is home to one of the City's most beloved museums, the Exploratorium, which hosts more than 600 science and art exhibits.
