While exploring around the Golden Gate Bridge, we ended up in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and are so glad that we did. The park provides fantastic views of San Fransisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. There is a winding road which brings you through the park with stop offs every so often. We parked and walked down to Rodeo beach which was a a great place to enjoy the views and the sound of the Pacific. If you continue to follow the road this was take you to Point Bonita Lighthouse which is a fun place to visit in itself and again provides fantastic views of the city and bridge.
