Crissy Field is another great spot for larger-than-life views of the Golden Gate Bridge, this time from a different angle. Once a U.S. army airfield, this stretch of land is located on marshland overlooking the Bay and has plenty of trails for strolling or grass for picnicking. Unlike most of San Francisco, Crissy Field is entirely flat, allowing for unobstructed views of the sunset.
This is the best spot in the city for a picnic with the quintessential Golden Gate Bridge views. It's windy on most days so wear layers and bring a kite!
