The Presidio
Batteries to Bluffs Trail to Marshall's Beach, Presidio national park

This idyllic swath of land at the north end of the San Francisco peninsula was originally an Army post from 1822 to 1846. The former military buildings, with their distinctive white facades and orange roofs, now house residents and businesses, including the Disney Museum and Lucasfilm's corporate headquarters. The park contains three hundred acres of protected eucalyptus, pine and cypress forests, which include trails for hiking and biking. Crissy Field, a manicured square with impressive views of the Golden Gate Bridge, is a popular spot for socializing, lawn sports and free concerts; in the summer, Off the Grid food trucks and booths assemble every Sunday. The Presidio is also home to one of the city's most popular summer beaches, Baker Beach. Nearby, the windswept Marina Green is best known as a destination for kite enthusiasts and hosts an annual kite festival.
