It was nice to go out to the marina. It is a nice and quiet path near the water. There are also fireworks on the fourth of July. Get there early!

This is a good place to take your loved ones. You can enjoy the whole day relaxing, and then eat at the nice surrounding restaurants which are very good.

It gets windy and cold so be prepared with the right clothing. The roads are run down in the area so watch out for potholes. Best reason to go is for the view of San Francisco.

This is not a place for serious hikers. If you enjoy a stroll beside the sea, the old bridge is the place to be. We generally spend a few hours here and then go to Viks chat for food. We love the old bridge on...More

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
