We have lived in San Francisco for over 15 years and we love everything about it. The Marina District is one of the few flat areas of the city which makes it a great place to walk. Within a 2-10 block radius I can walk to 6 coffee shops, 35 restaurants, 6 dry cleaners, 2 drug stores, 4 banks, 3 baby shops, 12 clothing boutiques, 2 movie theaters, 4 parks, 2 tennis courts, the Presidio, Crissy Field, The Palace of Fine Arts, and 6 bus lines that can get me anywhere else in the city I need to go.
The Marina District is one of the northern districts of San Francisco, California. The area is bounded to the east by Van Ness Ave, on the west by Lyon Street and the Presidio, on the south by Lombard St. The neighborhood sits on the site of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, staged after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to celebrate the reemergence of the city. The grounds for this world's fair were created from a former lagoon on landfill. Aside from the Palace of Fine Arts (POFA), all other buildings were demolished to make a residential neighborhood.
The Marina is one of the few flat areas of San Francisco so it is great for walking. It is also a very child and dog friendly area. The 94123 zip code boasts more dogs per square foot than any other zip code in the United States.
From the house you can walk to the Presidio, The Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field, The Golden Gate Bridge, Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s wharf. It is a short bus ride to Chinatown, The Ferry Building's amazing farmers market, Union Square as well as Golden Gate Park.
Walk to the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Palace of Fine Arts is just to the North of us – walk around the block we are on and you will find it. Proceed through the Palace to the other side, walk across the street to Crissy Field. Walk down Crissy field – along the path or beach -- for a mile, stopping for hot coffee or chocolate at the Warming Hut. It takes about an hour hike to Fort Point at the base of the bridge.
For the really adventurous, take the “thousand steps” behind the warming hut up to the bridge and hike across the bridge – 1.5 miles of it. Bring warm clothing, no matter the weather on the ground.
Ghirardelli Square/Fisherman’s wharf/Ferry building/Downtown/cable cars/Chinatown/North beach.
Walk three blocks east and catch the 30 bus at Divisadero and Francisco; get off at Ghirardelli Square / Fisherman’s Warf; walk to the F-line historic streetcars at Jones and Beach Street and take the streetcar to the ferry building. After dining and shopping, you can return on the same route or cross Embarcadero Street and catch the California Cable Car, transferring at Powell to the Powell/Hyde or Powell/Mason lines. A few blocks later you can get off and explore Chinatown and/or North Beach, and grab the 30 anywhere on Stockton Street. Or you can ride the Hyde all the way down to Ghirardelli Square, where you can grab a famous sundae before catching the 30 back home. Either way, get off at Francisco and Broderick for a 2 block walk home.
