America’s Cup

San Francisco, USA: July 4 - September 21, 2013 / America’s Cup

See San Francisco by Foot

San Francisco is one of the U.S.’s most walkable cities. Whether you walk along the waterfront or through the hills, you’ll be sure to enjoy the beauty and charm of the City by the Bay.

Walking to America’s Cup

San Francisco is a walking city. Try walking — it’s good for you, your wallet, and the planet! You can avoid the hills by walking along the coast or using beloved local routes like the Wiggle, or go right up the hills to enjoy terrific views from the Bay to the Pacific. The Bay Trail along the San Francisco Bay shoreline hugs the northern waterfront and is a terrific way to travel between downtown and the AC Village at Marina Green.

To plan a walking trip to the AC Village at Marina Green, visit Transit & Trails, or download the free app for iPhone or Android, and choose “walking” as your method of travel. While you’re on your way, keep an eye out for brand-new walking signs along the Embarcadero that tell you how far it is to popular destinations, look at maps at bus shelters, or just ask people along the way!
