Excellent views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Lots of trails to walk and an excellent visitor center. Many nearby restaurants. Note that parking is actually cheaper on weekdays than on weekends.

Pristine area which is beautifully maintained and has some lovely older buildings. Nothing "extra" special to see but a nice area to drive around. Also has some good vantage points of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Presidio provides a good view of the Golden Gate (which is actually Red, not Gold) for picture taking purposes. Brace yourself for the windy and cold weather so I suggest you wear appropriate clothings in this part of SanFo

You can get good pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge, but I would prefer other view points. But if you find yourself here, I would totally do it.
