I thought I knew San Francisco pretty well and had seen most of the major sights, as I’ve visited many, many times. I always knew there were great views of the Golden Gate Bridge from Baker Beach and the surrounding trails, though for whatever reason I never made it out there… until yesterday. Damn, it has to be one of the nicest areas of the city!
Not only are there great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, but the beach is beautiful and views of the surrounding coast are awesome as well. The North part of the beach is nude, so just keep that in mind. Fortunately my vision is pretty bad.
To top it all of Fleet Week is this weekend, so the Blue Angels and a United 747 were flying overhead for much of the afternoon. Combined with amazing weather, it was a beautiful afternoon.
Below are just a few pictures I took with my iPhone (which explains the not-so-awesome qualify).
If you’ve been to San Francisco and haven’t visited Baker Beach, it’s a must!
