In my opinion one of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge is from the paths along the water at Crissy Field. Crissy Field is a former airfield that is now a recreation area with picnic areas, bike rentals, a rock climbing gym, and even a fishing area. We love coming here for a leisurely stroll. If you keep following the road you'll end up at Fort Point. If it's a little chilly stop at the Warming Hut for a cup of coffee to take with you. And of course, when the fog lifts it's a great spot to photograph the bridge.
