    Marina District
    Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
    backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
    the Marina. Originally the location for the
    Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
    remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
    of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
    world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
    jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.

    Best thing is to call them. They had some Renos going on when we were there but they were minor and did not bother us at all.
