Marina District, San Francisco
(4.7/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
The Marina District is a neighborhood located in San Francisco, California. The neighborhood sits on the site of the 1915 Panama–Pacific International Exposition, staged after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to celebrate the reemergence of the city. Aside from the Palace of Fine Arts (POFA), all other buildings were demolished to make the current neighborhood.LocationThe area is bounded to the east by Van Ness Avenue and Fort Mason; on the west by Lyon Street and the Presidio National Park; on the south by Cow Hollow and Lombard St, which bisects the southern edge of the Marina District. The northern half of the Marina is a shoreline of the San Francisco Bay, and features the Marina Green, a picturesque park adjacent to the municipal boat marina from which the neighborhood takes its name.Much of the Marina is built on former landfill, and is susceptible to soil liquefaction during strong earthquakes. This phenomenon caused extensive damage to the entire neighborhood during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

  • This is definitely a must-see while in SF recommendation visit him at sunset so that you can see the sunset city and sea lions. Prepare your legs for walking around the pier

  • Meet the Marina District is if you are going to the Golden Gate Bridge, passing by Fort Mason, the Marina, the beach and then the Palace of arts. Is a site with far fewer tourists, because you don't have many attractions. There is a free parking.

  • Digress a little outside of the usual bustle, this place is ideal to walk around and take some good time. If you're in the area, you can go without problem, it is very cute.
