Fort Point Lighthouse San Francisco




This is one of my favorite places. The Fort Point Lighthouse which as you can see lives underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. This is a brick, Civil War era fort with a lighthouse on top. While the dream of the Golden Gate Bridge was coming alive, Fort Point’s future was looking bleak: the bridge’s construction plans called for the demolition of the fort. Fortunately, Chief Engineer Joseph Strauss appreciated the history and architecture of Fort Point and redesigned the bridge to arch over it. Some great views of the bridge, the bay and the city. You can even walk from this point under the roadbed by the toll plaza and get to the other side of the bridge and even hike down to Baker Beach from there.
