From the sandy shores of Baker Beach to the golden pagodas in Chinatown, San Francisco is a city full to the brim with must-see attraction. Here’s everything you can’t miss on your next trip to The Golden City.
If you think that San Francisco is all high-rises and gray skyline, think again. The Presidio is the city’s hidden gem, tucked between the Richmond District and Lower Pacific Heights. The area was a military base for more than 200 years, controlled by Spain, Mexico and later, the US Army. After the military departed in 1994, the Presidio became a national park, and it’s now a wooded area with towering trees that’s full of hiking and biking paths for everyone to enjoy. With a 300-acre (121-ha) historic forest to explore, you won’t run out of things to see.
