A visit to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge is always a must-do for tourists in San Francisco. If you want to get a great view of the bridge and the water, Crissy Field is a great place to go to avoid all of the chaos of tourists in mass quantities. Whether you wake up and go for a morning walk on the beach or bring a picnic and enjoy the sunset behind the bridge, every time of day is beautiful at Crissy Field. This is a great place for photo ops as well (I know because moms is always taking pictures of me with the Golden Gate in the background). Dogs run free on the beach, so it’s a great spot to bring them to enjoy the sun, sand and water.
