Neighborhood
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 a nice area full of shops and restaurants, ideal for walking. I recommend going in the hours of sunset. It has a classic view overlooking the bay which is not to be missed.  more »
  • Is one of the best and most expensive neighborhoods of San Francisco to live. Night has great places for fun. Bars, restaurants, etc. During the day has several shops and necessary. The view from the highest points is very beautiful. It is better to live it for a walk. But it's worth it.

  • The entire area that overlooks the water completely amazing to walk around. Here you go people skateboarding walking jogging bikes and trades to walk from Pier 1 to the golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must for a walk of about 40 minutes, free!
