The Marina District of San Francisco is full of both history and modernity. Originally a site for early Native Americans, followed by exploring Spaniards and then utilized for militaristic purposes, this region has grown to be a hot-spot for young, successful singles. With views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the historical prison, Alcatraz, the neighborhood is a popular destination for both tourists and locals. Light, crisp ocean breezes whip through Marina's shopping and dining strips, momentarily interrupting a moment of city living and reminding its visitors of its salty waters. 

Fine dining and boutiques line Chestnut Street, where you can even find canine spas that offer everything from a traditional wash and cut to hair dying and nail painting for your furry friend. Most restaurants offer patio seating which may accommodate pets so long as they're leashed and well-behaved. 

The Marina District has grocery chains, restaurants, coffee shops, fashion stores, novelty gift shops, multiple museums, movie theaters, and parks, almost giving its residents little reason to leave its borders. All in all, the neighborhood is both extremely walkable and flushed with entertainment and activities.

What's known as the Marina District today used to be the marshland of early America. This was before condominiums, before the tech industry boom that drove up both population and cost of living along the West Coast as far up as Seattle, even before Westward Expansion. As the region slowly recedes into sea level, this fact makes the district flat when compared to the hills San Francisco is known for. Part of the area was also the site of debris dumping during the aftermath of a devastating earthquake and fire that took over the city in the early 1900's. This eventually helped level out the land, perfectly designing it for the development and expansion of the city. 

San Francisco caters to its pedestrians and bikers as this is how many of its residents and most of its tourists explore all the city has to offer. This means you'll be hard-pressed to find streets not lined with bike lanes, neighborhoods without sidewalks, or busy intersections without crosswalks.

Originally a militaristic advantage for the Spanish, Fort Mason eventually came into American hands, thanks to a trusty revolt, and was converted into a stronghold during the gold rush. Today, Fort Mason is just a portion of the several acres of federally protected land along the Bay Area's historic coast and is known as Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Its barracks and fortification no longer needed, Fort Mason now is home to a community garden, a weekly farmer's market, a cultural center, a youth hostel, and acres of green space for the public to enjoy, including Patrick's Park. 

Patrick's Park is named after a local legend: an awe-inspiring, trick-loving dog named Patrick. On certain days you and your doggo may even get to witness Patrick in action or meet him and his owner. This is a local favorite for dog-owners, despite its size. It also hosts an annual St. Patrick's Day Dog parade where pups in costumes can strut their stuff, meet new friends, and strike a pose. 

The Marina Green Triangle is positioned at the top right corner of the Marina District. Benches give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views or hop on the many pathways for a jog with your dog. It's also a pit stop for many bikers, as it's along the San Francisco Bay Trail. Walk 15 minutes west and you'll find the Chrissy Field Center, home to yachts, picnics, a lighthouse, and a quirky attraction known as the Wave Organ. All of this can be enjoyed within a 30 to 40-minute walk if your pooch is up for a fun stroll.

If you're looking for something more doggie-centric, the Marina District has that too! Moscone Dog Park was unveiled in early 2018, opening to the public and its playful pets to enjoy for years to come. The area is fenced, giving dogs the opportunity to romp and run without being encumbered by a leash.
