Golden Gate Bridge

Make sure to travel both during the day and night to appreciate the bridge and the views. Also, allow sufficient time to walk around the area. Good for families.

They have made this bridge bike and ped friendly. I hear they are going to charge a toll for bikes soon. Do not go here on the weekend in the summer, or 5-9 am and 3-7 pm on a weekday and expect to enjoy your visit. Mid day is not too bad and there is a great vista point on... More

The Golden Gate Bridge is easily one of the most recognizable bridges in the world. If you're traveling to the San Francisco area, this is a must-see. While you can take photos of the bridge from either side and cross by auto, it's definitely worth it to walk or bike as well. On this most recent visit, we decided to... More

I was in SF in June, while in the downtown was sunny and hot, at the bridge I needed my windbraker, thankfully I was ready but saw people walking in shorts! Too much cloud.fogg and mist all around, could not see much of the bridge but it was an experience on its own. I walked all the way to Sausalito... More

Iconic sight across the bay. Good views from Fishermans Wharf and on the boat ride over to Alcatraz. We drove over it in a convertible Mustang so that was an experience.

Our first sight of thIs famous structure was from the end of Mason St. and Crissy Field. We took a walk from the Palace of Fine Arts to the promenade of the Marina District with the intention of walking all the way to Fisherman's Wharf instead of taking the bus. The view was fantastic from here not only of the... More

A must see, you can experience the Golden Gate Bridge in a number of ways. I took a bus tour which drove across the bridge, the bus stopped to let us get pictures. I also rented bikes to go across the bridge and this was just amazing. I would really recommend this.

How can one leave this place without walking on the bridge. The most memorable thing to do in this gorgeous city. The only NEGATIVE was (men can stop reading here)..our visit was towards the end of the day. There was no toilet paper in the 'facilities.' Take your personal 'cloths' and hand sanitizers with you. I heard women asking for... More

Made a quick stop on the far side of the bridge across from SF on the way to a Muir Woods tour. Really cool view and it was neat seeing something so famous

Beautiful! Drive across to the Marin headland for a picnic. If the day is overcast take the opportunity to get a picture when you can. This bridge is so lovely.
