San Franciscans are justifiably proud that we live in one of the great cultural centers in the nation. But if you haven't been to the Presidio, you are missing out on some of the best events and destinations that the Bay Area has to offer. The Presidio has long been a "cultural crossroads" shaped by many – Native Americans, generations of soldiers who passed through its gates, and the now visitors from across the globe. Today, the park's cultural hub is the Presidio Officers' Club, San Francisco's most historic building reborn as a home for live music and dance, theatre, talks, films, exhibitions, and creative family fun – all free to the public. But it doesn't stop there. Museums, a dance theatre, and outdoor picnics and festivals on the Main Parade Ground keep you engaged and entertained. Today's Presidio is a place to laugh, learn, try on new perspectives, and simply enjoy.
