San Francisco Heritage

Few San Francisco neighborhoods have an origin story as fairytale-like as the Marina District. Once a muddy cove transformed into a fantastical fair of courtyards, towers, and light, it then arose into a fashionable neighborhood of winding streets, village shops, and a bayside park. Today, the Marina is set between the six-lane Lombard Street Expressway and the San Francisco Bay, bookended by two former military installations, Fort Mason and the Presidio. Read more about the history of this district, which we originally spotlighted in October 2020.
