One of the most iconic and spectacular structures in all of California is the Golden Gate Bridge. Well, at our pick, you’ll be right beside it. Fort Baker is a brand new San Francisco vacation destination and quickly becoming one of the most popular.
Fort Baker puts a whole new spin on San Francisco vacations. You’ll be just across the bridge from all of the San Francisco Bay area excitement – Fisherman’s Wharf, China Town and the most crooked street in the world. Yet, you’ll be front and center in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, an area filled with greenery and scenery. Fort Baker is surrounded by 75,500 acres of open space and is managed by the National Park Service. Vacations here offer layers of history and incredible views of Alcatraz, Angel Island and San Francisco. Fort Baker accommodations highlight its history, blending colonial architecture with luxurious amenities and “green” features.
In addition to a plethora of outdoor activities and San Francisco adventure, Fort Baker also offers programs for intellectual discourse on everything from environmental sustainability to personal rejuvenation. Make sure to visit The Institute at the Golden Gate, which encourage environmental learning.
