Golden Gate National Recreation Area

San Francisco is a city of treasure when it comes to attractions. The Golden Gate Bridge is an icon in the area, considered an engineering marvel when it was built in 1937. Then, a little over a mile offshore is Alcatraz Island, a major tourist destination that you can visit or take a boat tour around. You can also visit the Presidio, a park covering 1,500 acres that used to be a military base. This recreation area, with its coastal access and mild temperatures, is a favorite for travelers in the area.
