A walk across the Golden Gate Bridge is a real treat especially now that they have separated the pedestrians from the cyclists- except the cyclists who cannot read! One of the hidden surprises in San Francisco is the fact that at the weekend and some holidays the 76x muni bus runs from Sutter and Stockton across the bridge into Marin... More

Busy it must be Spring Break for. A lot of people! Its nice to go at night too. Make sure to go hungry so you can eat at the end of the ride over at In n Out. Its worth the wait for those famous Hamburgers!

The bridge is very impressive. Great construction. I went there by sightseeing bus with open roof - great views, but windy. I had to hold my baseball hat with my hand - in this position it was harder to take pictures :)

A walk across GGB on a sunny day is wonderful, healthy and nice! But the walking lane is too narrow for bikers and pedestrians because they disturb themselves all the time, especially on sunny days when there are lots of people on the bridge. Bikers shouldn´t go over 8 mph, an own lane for bikers seperated from the pedestroan´s lane... More

I've been lucky enough to visit San Fransisco twice and on both occasions visited the Golden Gate Bridge which is a phenomenal piece of engineering. The first visit in 2011: The fog around the bay slowly drifted in and when crossing it became so thick that you couldn't see anything which added to the fun. The second in 2012: Completely... More

We walked from Golden Gate Park up to the bridge and on to it. It was gorgeous. Be aware that the walk up the hill is pretty steep and not for anyone with foot or leg issues.

We rented a bike for couple of hours and cruised through the entire bridge enjoying the splendid views it offers. It's definitely a unique piece of architecture that must be explored while is SF!

I have been to San Francisco many times however seeing the bridge still captivates me and draws me. Just sitting on the constantly improving visa point and Visitors Centre is a delight, as is walking across. The views of the city, of Alcatraz and of Tiberon are spectacular on a clear day and the place can be very mysterious when... More

The Golden Gate Bridge is so amazing and well worth a visit! Such an iconic and beautiful piece of history. We crossed it on a tour bus, went beneath it in a ferry and rode a tandem bike to the other side and back. YOU MUST GO AND SEE IT!!!!

Walking or riding a bike across the Golden Gate Bridge is a must do in San Francisco!! On the bridge there is a side for walking and riding bikes and there is a side for just riding bikes. If you're riding a bike, I would recommend doing the side with walkers and bikers. We did the other side with just... More
