We crossed this iconic bridge several times on bus and in a car as the weather was on our side. If you are taking one of the many sightseeing tour buses remember your coat as its freezing cold crossing the bridge and at the look out points. If you cross by car take the exit to Sausalito and double back... More

It was a great view, but cold and windy. We looked in the store and drove across the bridge on our tour bus. We didn't hang around too long.

Such a cool bridge! Driving over this bridge was so cool. The monstrosity of it is overwhelming. People are able to walk across the side of it (in a designated area of course) and take in the views of the water. Wish traffic was slower so I could take pictures from my car!

Amazing architecture and history of the build. It was a bit scary to be on and very heavily used, but loved it!

Loud but fun. Great views, adventure to Sausalito. Be aware that commuter cyclists are more focused on getting across the bridge than you are with your camera and frequent stops. Just be aware of those around you and you'll be fine. Enjoy!

I love walking through the bridge...It was very cold but was worth it to cross the bridge and arrive to Sausalito

Although I was not after tons of gold there, the experience of driving, biking, and walking was just golden. A part from seeing the bridge from its top you also better watch it from some distance especially at night time.

Better than what you'll ever see in the movies! A decent walk across it will give you an idea of the sheer size and great views of the city. We'll worth it.

We did the bike thing across the bridge. Was a very busy Sat with all these people walking with no clue they are on the bridge loaded with other people. Anyway.... the only way to bike this bridge is with the motorized bikes. Be aware: It looks like it would be your average bike ride BUT its not. It is... More
