Golden Gate Bridge / Fort Point 

     A wedding at The Palace of Fine Arts . . .


This walk leads you across San Francisco's most recognized landmark, the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, and to one of the city's lesser known but fascinating sites, Fort Point, which sits in the shadow of the bridge.  A side-trip to Fort Point, a Civil War-era fort modeled after Fort Sumter, includes its fascinating history and the story of the bridge's graceful arch that was designed to preserve this historic structure. 



Golden Gate Park 


    A wedding in Golden Gate Park . . .

This three-in-one self-guided walking tour lets you explore Stow Lake, Strybing Arboretum, and Spreckels Lake as three separate excursions -- each a mile or less -- or spend the day and visit them all.  Each walk has a unique flavor, but the synergy of the three walks plus the Introduction to Golden Gate Park gives you a complete historical and modern day perspective of the whole park.
