Visited the Art Market and was impressed that they kept the old For Mason Army Barracks and were able to create an interesting art space within its plain walls. Beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay. It is interesting to visit for historical purposes.

I have driven past this area before but have never entered the site. Today I was brought here for a conference reception at the General's Residence. Great historical site, and excellent views of Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf. Well worth a visit

I have lived near San Francisco my entire life, and I have never known about Fort Mason. It is a beautiful property, and if you ever have an opportunity to either attend or host an event at the Residence, you are in for a treat....More

This is the place to eat! This place is fun and you will be overwhelmed by the different authentic cuisines here. My favorite truck was the gyro stop simply because i love me some greek food!

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
