104 Montgomery St., San Francisco , CA 94129, United States

Established in 1776 as a Spanish military fortification (inherited first by Mexico, then the U.S.), the nearly 1,500-acre Presidio is a National Historic Landmark combining historic circa-18th-and 19th-century buildings with parkland, wildlife habitat, visitor centers, and mixed residential-commercial space. Its once-grand Main Parade ground—paved over for parking decades ago—is greening into a landscaped, mixed-use space, making it a perfect spot for picnicking along the San Francisco Bay. Then tour the Walt Disney Family Museum, which opened here in 2010 in the circa-1890's army barracks with a 20,000-square-foot, glass-and-steel addition.
