Ro­mance and Re­ju­ve­na­tion

Where San Francisco - - Where Calendar -

With un­par­al­leled nat­u­ral beauty and sur­prises at ev­ery turn, the Pre­sidio presents great op­tions for a date or a day of un­wind­ing. Start with cof­fee at Star­bucks in Build­ing C of the Let­ter­man Dig­i­tal Arts Cen­ter, fol­lowed by a stroll around the ad­ja­cent park. From there, walk along the Pre­sidio Prom­e­nade and take in the sights, or cut up to Lovers’ Lane. Pre­sidio sol­diers fre­quently fol­lowed this trail into the city to visit loved ones, and it is also the site of Andy Goldswor­thy’s “Wood Line” in­stal­la­tion.

Just be­fore sun­set, hit the .7-mile Bat­ter­ies to Bluffs Trail that bor­ders the Pa­cific Ocean. It in­cludes some stairs, but the Golden Gate Bridge views and ac­cess to se­cluded Mar­shall’s Beach make the walk worth­while.

If you pre­fer re­sort-style ac­tiv­i­ties, book a tee time at the 18-hole Pre­sidio Golf Course, which winds through stands of eu­ca­lyp­tus and Mon­terey pine trees on the park’s south­ern side. For a pam­per­ing al­ter­na­tive, book a cou­ples mas­sage at SenSpa.

End the day with din­ner and Cham­pagne at The Com­mis­sary, or share wine and dessert at the Pre­sidio So­cial Club.
