Breathtaking at sunset. Ideal time for photos. Welcoming park next to the bridge was also a very lovely sight. Concrete stairs leading up to the bridge literally says 'welcome' in about 20 different languages. Beautiful.

Drive down Marine Drive for a great view. There are many free parking spaces down there. You can get there from the beautiful Presidio park, North West corner.

Hum the Gilligan's Island theme while reading this review:) We started off on bikes from the wharf and it was sunny. Chance of showers - but CA has a drought going on - so they usually don't pan out. Very easy/pretty bike ride along trails to the bridge. Just starts to sprinkle as we approach bridge - no problem -... More

Before approaching the bridge there are few viewpoints you can visit and take photos of the bridge. The guide told us that San Francisco is usually foggy due to the mixture of moisture & cold air, so there are only 60 days a year when you can see the whole bridge, otherwise you can only partially see the bridge in...

Good: Beautiful views, historic site, a must do in SF. Bad: scary when it's windy. Invisible in the fog.

We ran the bridge during the rock n roll half marathon and it was great, I can't wait to do it again next year! The view is amazing--

Great experience cycling across with my family. The view is great, and it's safe :-). There are plenty of photograph opportunities.

We just got back from Easter break in San Francisco and loved it!! One things we had wanted to do while there was to walk across the GGB. If you have time, I would recommend it! This was one of the highlights of our visit! There are bikes for rent to ride it but we wanted to walk it instead.... More

One of those places you must see. Great bridge and a great sense of history! We drove away from San Fransisco to the other side of the bride and got a brilliant view of the city and other interesting places like Alcatraz. Lucky to get a nice clear day! Worth a visit!

This is one of the architectural wonders of the world! Get off your rear end and walk across the bridge. It's truly beautiful. There's no place in the world like it. Also I loved Golden Gate park -- I wasn't expecting to see such a beautiful park near the bridge. I liked the greenery at the park and the history... More
