The northern neighborhoods of San Francisco offer a wealth of pedestrian-friendly sights and activities. Our proposed walking itinerary includes time in the Presidio District at a leading spa, a stroll through the Marina District and our favorite spots for light bites, wine and dinner.

Start your day at the 13,000-square-foot SenSpa (1161 Gorgas Avenue). Located in a renovated World War I Army barracks, this exceptional wellness center offers 14 treatment rooms and one couples room with a Jacuzzi and steam shower. The full-service spa menu includes massages, aromatherapy and integrative medical sessions such as acupuncture and nutrition counseling. I recommend the Swedish-inspired Muscle Refresher massage, which is ideal for both men and women. Afterward, the Warming Room offers chaises longues set around a working fireplace. Other amenities include a bamboo garden and a eucalyptus steam room.
