The Presidio

The Presidio, with its towering eucalyptus trees, is a 2.8-square-mile former military base reborn as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Artists like Andy Goldsworthy have created huge natural installations throughout the park that delight visitors, along with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The refurbished red brick military buildings at the Presidio are now restaurants, hotels, and attractions, including The Walt Disney Family Museum (104 Montgomery Street). The Presidio Visitor Center (210 Lincoln Boulevard) is the launching pad for park adventures, with its engaging exhibits and knowledgeable staff.
