Each year, more than 18 million visitors come to the Bay Area’s national parks to share special moments at rocky beaches, wooded areas, and historical sites. These exceptional destinations give daters a chance to unplug and connect with the environment outside the city.

The busiest unit in our national park system isn't a park at all.

Mason, not when they're roaming the vast beach flats of Ft. Funston, near the San Mateo County line.
