Bay Area — No. California
San Francisco, CA
San Francisco Attractions
Located by Fort Mason, the Marina Green overlooks
the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel
Island and San Francisco
Bay. The large grassy area is surrounded by a jogging track and a walking path overlooking the bay — it's a popular destination
with tourists and locals alike. Take a long leisurely walk along the
Marina Green to Crissy Field, Crissy
Field Beach and Fort Point. In our
opinion, there are NO better views in the world!
People come here to picnic with
their families, fly their kites, walk their dogs, exercise, jog,
bicycle... you get the idea. One end of the Marina Green (near
Crissy Field and Crissy
Field Beach) features
a grassy volleyball area — another popular hangout for sunbathers
Fleet Week at the Marina Green
The Marina Green is also one of the best viewing areas to see
the U.S. Navy Blue Angels over San Francisco Bay during the
annual Fleet Week Celebrations in October.
