The city of San Francisco traces its earliest roots back to the Presidio. This unique national park offers hiking, wildflower viewing, picnic areas, and so much more. Getting to the Presidio of San Francisco is best done by renting a San Francisco charter bus. Our buses will transports groups of all sizes for an awesome day at the Presidio.
The Presidio is a really interesting location for history buffs. The earliest visitors to the area date back to the arrival of the Spanish in 1776. Eventually, the area fell under Mexican rule for 24 years before the U.S. Army took control in 1846. For the next 148 years, the military transformed the Presidio of San Francisco from windswept dunes into the region’s preeminent military post. The park was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1962 and it has officially been part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area since 1994.
Visitors to the Presidio can engage in a variety of activities. After getting oriented with the park at the Presidio Visitor Center, you have the option to hike to a scenic overlook of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay, learn more about the park’s history at the Presidio Officers’ Club, smell bouquets of native wildflowers at Crissy Marsh, or simply enjoy a family picnic and Frisbee toss on the Main Parade Ground.
