The Marina neighborhood of San Francisco is one of the most desirable districts in the city. With astounding views of the Golden Gate rising over the Marin Headlands, this is where the city and the bay come together. Life in the Marina implies life by the sea, with all the romance it evokes, giant exotic yachts, magnificent sunsets, and breathtaking parks. Lovers of the outdoors populate the many hiking and running trails which line the waterfront, taking in the sun drenched views and the wide open bucolic expanse of Marina Green. This magnificent park is in steady use by kite fliers, volleyball lovers, and frisbee experts alike. There are some high quality sports retailers nearby to help outfit the exercise minded residents. Just steps away you'll find the awe-inspiring Palace of Fine Arts, an exquisite garden and classic structure reminiscent of Roman Temples which was designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1915. Here you'll find a much needed oasis of serenity in an otherwise hectic city. The rotunda, powerful columns and introspective lagoon are a select location for wedding parties and an often repeated image for travel magazines. East of the Marina one finds a set of dock buildings, a former Army outpost, which have become central to the cultural life of the area, known as Fort Mason. It currently houses an extraordinary cultural arts center - full of galleries, dance performance spaces and a theater. A one-of-a-kind famers market resides here weekly, as does an annual food and wine festival that attracts thousands of foodees from all across the Bay. Nowhere in the city does waterfront life come together so perfectly with vibrant city culture and world-class restaurants. Don't miss the inspiring Marina District.
