Fishermans Wharf to Golden Gate Bridge Walking Tour
This refreshing, easy-going walk along San Francisco's spectacular waterfront starts at the historic Hyde Street Pier (a collection of historic sailing vessels), visits the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park visitor center, then heads out along the waterfront following the sandy, crescent-shaped shore of Aquatic Park to the Marina Green, the beautiful and historic Palace of Fine Arts, and Crissy Field. On Fridays, we also visit colorful Fort Point, a Civil War-era fort that sits at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge's south tower, before making a short ascent on a scenic coastal trail to the Golden Gate Bridge Overlook. Here you will enjoy photographing the panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay and Pacific Ocean, Alcatraz and the high bluffs of the Marin Headlands. The guided walk ends here but you are welcome to walk the bridge (1.7 miles each way) on your own, a spectacular bay crossing that should be on every visitors' must-do list.
