The Presidio is San Francisco’s great escape - once a premier Army post, the Presidio is a unique national park next to the Golden Gate Bridge. It offers the spectacular vistas, nature, history, and events you would expect, and surprising experiences created by organizations who have re-imagined barracks and bunkers to welcome the public in unique spaces. Dine in uniquely-San Francisco settings at The Commissary or Arguello. Hike on a trail, discover outdoor art, take a tour on a free shuttle, bird watch, and explore the Presidio Officers’ Club museum and cultural center, or play a round of golf. Plan an event in a historic, scenic venue, or even stay the night. Many public activities are free, making the Presidio an affordable escape that’s welcoming to all.
