Crissy Field

As with much of San Francisco's Presidio, Crissy Field used to be an Army airstrip. Now, the 4.3-mile waterfront promenade is homebase for Marina residents (and their dogs) to toss a frisbee, play in the sandy dunes and have a picnic with an iconic view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It can be a bit breezy but that just means that wind and kite surfers are likely on the water for your entertainment. If you're feeling cold, make a pit stop at the Warming Hut for organic soups and sandwiches and only-in-San-Francisco books, games and souvenirs.

Want that ultimate Golden Gate Bridge selfie? Head to Crissy Field. No really, this place is the perfect spot for a walk or a picnic with friends. Be prepared to walk a bit to get there though. Also, in one of the old buildings there is a cafe and a ton of souvenirs inside so be sure to stop in to grab your mini Golden Gate Bridge to take home.
