Best Shot of the Golden Gate Bridge from Crissy Field?
Crissy Field started out as a salt marsh that became a gathering ground for the native people. It was later the site where Spanish explorers and Russian, English and Boston traders landed. In 1915 it was the site of the Panama Pacific International Exposition. Shortly thereafter it became a U.S. military airfield. It has since been converted into a national park. Crissy Field is a part of the Presidio, it reopened in 2002 christened as the Bay Area's newest national park. The 100-acre national park consists of a tidal marsh, sheltered picnic area, bike path, walking path, café, bookstore and education center. Crissy Field is a major part of the Presidio and together they were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962.
There are plenty of spots to take a small picnic at Crissy Field, if you forgot the food, hop on over to the Warming Hut or the cafe, grab some grub, then settle down and take in the beauty of the city. The Warming Hut is a great café known for it's tasty organic menu.
Crissy Field is a great place to relax and take in the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city skyline. A walk along Crissy Walk will take you to Fort Point, the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is by far a favorite place for many San Franciscans to take a stroll, jog, bicycle or bird watch. On occasion you can catch a seal hanging out there too.
Located at the eastern end of Crissy Field are bathrooms and showers for the day at the beach. The western end houses the picnic area, restrooms and the Warming Hut.
