Visiting the Presidio in San Francisco

Learn about the Presidio in San Francisco, California in this Howcast travel video.


San Francisco has many beautiful parks, but the Presidio is the most impressive park in the city.

If you prefer rugged wildlife to manicured gardens, the Presidio is just the park you’re looking for.

The woods in the Presidio are perfect for hiking.

But there’s also plenty to do if you’re not interested in working up a sweat.

On Crissy Field you’ll find restaurants, paved paths for walking and biking, and kid-friendly educational facilities.

There’s the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center, where children can learn about marine ecosystems and get a close look at marine life.

The Crissy Field Center offers an even broader selection of exhibits and educational resources on environmental science.

But if all you want is a good view, the Presidio is actually a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The view of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge can’t be beat.

The Golden Gate Bridge is almost synonymous with San Francisco.

Though crossing the Golden Gate Bridge should be a part of any visit to San Francisco, getting to see it up close is also important too!

The Presidio is a must on your trip to San Francisco.
