""Coldest Place on the Planet""

The above are the famous last words of my boss, and served as fair warning for me before I started working here. I actually work part-time at the ropes course, hidden in the treetop canopies here above the park, and have visited the nearby beach for some rock climbing.

It has all the makings for a perfect, idyllic city spot - the beach, outdoor activities, history, beautiful views, low traffic, access to the best city in the U.S., some quaint cafes, good parking, and great parks - except for one major, major flaw - the weather is consistently foggy, cold, and never seems to creep above 50 degrees. As a result, I am always miserably cold working outside and long for some sunshine that never quite seems to creep through the blanket of fog and towering trees. The ocean view is beautiful, and also a bit depressing, almost like an abandoned ghost town.

I'm torn on how to rate this spot, because it has all the makings for a cool place, but I just can't quite get over the weather!
  • Great scenery
  • Nearby beach
  • Reasonable real estate
  • Cold enough that it is the epitome of a Mark Twain quote
  • Hard to get to from downtown

"Nicest view in the City"

Fort Miley is a very beautiful place. On a good when the sky is clear its one of most beautiful sights of the Golden Gate Bridge that you could possibly get. There is a great park you can enter from it called lands end, which has the best trails I have seen in the city. Some times it can get very windy and quite cold at that point but it’s still very nice. I would recommend anybody who visits San Francisco too visit this place because the view is incredible. But the best time to visit Fort Miley is at night when the Golden Gate Bridge has its lights on.

"One of the most beautiful spots in San Francisco!"

Fort Miley is technically not even a full street as it mainly runs in a circle around the Fort Miley parking lot. The actual Fort is one of the most beautiful spots in San Francisco in my opinion. It is generally unheard of and is known mainly to locals. It is a great place to bring a date or a few friends to just hang out. The view from the parking lot is spectacular as you get the see the ocean front and the beach with nothing but the trees and wilderness around you. If you are a fan of pretty views and placid, relaxing areas, Fort Miley is the place for you. There are always hundreds of parking spots, at least when I have been there so that should not be an issue.
