Homes for sale in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco are some of the most sought-after in the city. At the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco begins here, where the city meets the Bay. The Marina district is, of course, home to a large marina and its fleet of exotic yachts. But landlocked residents in the million dollar homes of the Marina appreciate the sun-swept views, the walking, running, and biking trail that runs along the Bay, and the wide open grassy Marina Green that's in constant use by kite fliers, volleyball and soccer players. All those joggers and spandex-clad bikers you see racing through Marina Green probably just came from The Sports Basement, a large and low-key sports and athletic retail outlet just steps away in the Presidio.
A main attraction in the Marina is the Palace of Fine Arts, a Classic Roman style monument designed by Bernard Maybeck for the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915. The rotunda, massive columns and lagoon are a favorite place for wedding photographers and travel magazines to get their iconic pictures.
Just east of the Marina is Fort Mason, a former Army outpost, that now houses a vibrant cultural arts center that features art openings, galleries, with dance and theatre performances in the Cowell Theater. A farmers' market, a food and wine festival that attracts thousands, and Greens, one of the first restaurants to offer haute cuisine vegetarian fare, all operate out of the old Army depot buildings at Fort Mason.
