  • The Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge
  • Weather check
  • Mission Bay (where the Mpowerment training takes place).

The Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge

Gotta see that Golden Gate? Then visit the Presidio Visitor Center.  The Presidi-go Shuttle is a free ride to the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge. You can catch the Presido-go Shuttle from the Embarcadero in downtown SF.  The Presidi-go Shuttle also goes by the Walt Disney Family Museum.

It is (usually) cooler and (often) windy. Check to see if you will need a wind-breaker / jacket and a umbrella for showers.  SF average rain and temperatures.
