  • A calm spot away from the busy hustle and bustle of San Francisco. Ideal for families and couples, many are.

  • I'm actually here with no purpose. I didn't know there was a place like ni in the San Francisco Bay area. But because the tour we asked to gather here, so my friend and I to this area. Due to the arrival of our earlier than promised, my friend and I put the empty time to wander around this place. Because the time is not much, I just saw the grounds only and not got to see his ships in more closely. Perhaps another time

  • Not really impressive, not a whole lot to see or left to your imagination. Would not do again. Only if your an old sailor?  more »

  • Old charming ships of days long past. There is a section where photos and magazines are posted and my grandchildren were in awe of the histories of these people and curious of their path. They guessed what each one ate as there was a menu on board also, what they did for a living and how long they lived. It was a good day to visit history.
  • Pretty cool and the place has a nice bathroom! Free exhibits to explore with fun hands-on educational activities for kids and adults to enjoy. The ships do cost money to tour though. There are usually a variety of weekend events happening, free and paid.
  • Lovely park with of Street parking. Lovely view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz is visible. All of this underneath the massive lit Ghirardelli sign from Ghirardelli Square. Sirens time here just watching tube go by and right next to the Powell and Hyde cable car terminal.
  • It was an incredible day. One of those Daisy dream of in San Francisco where it's warm sunny. The Rangers very friendly and explains a lot. You just have to ask a question.
  • We visited several places on our trip including Janis Joplin's 🏠, the Full House house, the building where The Godfather was produced. We also visited the Presidio, which was beautiful! San Quentin was very dooming if I do say.
