This National Historic Landmark was established by the Spanish during colonial times to guard the bay against invasion and later served as a base for the American military through the Cold War. Since 1994 it’s been a National Park. You can visit the unique (if a bit morbid) pet cemetery, check out the old gun batteries or take a stroll down scenic lovers’ lane. The Presidio golf course (300 Finley Road) offers one of the best views in the city as well.
