Mission District Event | San Francisco Travel Blog
What better way to spend the long holiday weekend – and the official kick off to summer – than with a trip to San Francisco. San Francisco is home to one of the country’s largest and longest running Memorial Day traditions. Every year on Memorial Day starting at 10:30 AM, members of the military, family and friends gather at the National Cemetery in Presidio to honor those who have died for our country. Open to the public, the service last until 1:30 PM. While at the National Cemetery, be sure to check out some of the other attractions, including two World War II era boats that now serve as floating museums. A trip to Fort Point National Historic Site is also worth the trip.
