  • Fort Baker is a great place to go! The views of the Golden Gate are stunning! There is a small beach for kids and dogs to play on, and it's a good swimming/wading spot when it's warm out. The hike up to the old bunkers is neat, with views overlooking SF, the bay, and the bridge. The pier is a great place to catch fish and take in the sights. The paved trail that goes up under the bridge to the vista point offers really cool underside views of the bridge's structure and architecture. It's a neat walk!
  • Great place for kids as young as 1 or 2 yrs. For discounts, check with local libraries, financial institutions such as Bank of America and possibly some credit unions, and membership with some museum alliance's. The museum offers a variety of play areas, art areas, discovery and science areas. There are both indoor and out door areas. Great view of the SF Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Great place.lots of fun for kids and adults. Fabulous views of San Francisco. We were there for Chinese New Year. Great atmosphere. It is quite expensive
  • This is one of my most favorite places in all of California. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge and city skyline (especially during sunset) are INCREDIBLE. There is also a public fishing pier, which does not require a license to fish. It's mostly crab fisherman, but still really fun. The Bay Area Discovery Museum is also there and is a great place to take kids 11 and under. Parking is free and there's no time limit. Although, I have visited when there are lots of people, somehow this place manages to always feel tucked away from busy city surrounding it. I highly recommend checking it out.
  • This place is hard to get to but that makes it even more special. The views of SF downtown and surrounding nature are amazing.
