OCEAN BEACH AND CLIFF HOUSE
OCEAN BEACH AND CLIFF HOUSE – Ocean Beach and the Cliff House are located on the Great Highway in San Francisco; at the far west foot of Golden Gate Park. Ocean Beach is a huge open park with ample parking: fishing, surfing and walking are enjoyable pastimes. The Cliff House is currently a restaurant and bar. The site location has considerable San Francisco history. Playland at the Beach and the Sutro Baths had swimming, rides and concessions; since the late 1800s. The 10-acre parks are gone now, but take a walk nearby. You can still find the Sutro Baths ruins and the Camera Obscura at the site. You can also visit many of the vintage amusements at the Musee Mecanique, located at Fisherman’s Wharf Pier 45.
