“From its vantage point overlooking the spectacular Golden Gate, Fort Point defended the San Francisco Bay following California’s Gold Rush through World War II. Its beautifully arched casemates display the art of 3rd system brick masonry and interacts gracefully with the Golden Gate Bridge.” –NPS.gov
That pretty much says it all. I’m not a big fan of the history of wars and battles, but it’s still pretty cool to see the architecture. Plus, the view is absolutely stunning. Who doesn’t like to see the Golden Gate Bridge?
