Impressive as always

No matter where you look from, the Golden Gate Bridge is impressive and takes your breath away - full of history, stories.

Visiting the Gilden Gate bridge was on our bucket list of must do activities on our round the world tour. We combined this with the Alcatraz tour (although never managed to get onto the island as this is usually booked months in advance..be aware,) We booked a boat tour around the GGB and The Rock, but visited it again later...

I have been to San Francisco several times so I was surprised when a friend showed me a unique view from Fort Baker in Marin side. Great pictures can be taken looking up the bridge. I highly recommend it because it is different than the typical post card views you see. Moreover, it is less crowded so you feel like... More

Not much else to say...the Golden Gate is one of those timeless landmarks that you absolutely love, and love to visit, time and again. Still need to walk it!!!

We stopped by at the bridge and had a great time as we explored the bridge from a couple of vantage points. Do make sure that you make that stop - just do not be satisfied by viewing from a distance although that too is a gorgeous view. You can park at the visitors area and explore. Unfortunately, the only... More

Go past the overlook, thru the 101 North tunnel and take Sausalito exit (Alexander Avenue). Instead of going right and into Sausalito, go LEFT through a tunnel toward Marin Headlands and come out by the Pacific Ocean and the Rodeo beach. Climb the hill and look back. Best GGB and SF view! : )

You have to see it to believe it. It is just huge. Took a ferry ride from Pier 39 which took us below the Bridge. The water gets choppy but the ferry does give the best view into the structure from underneath.

If you want to get a great photo of the Golden Gate bridge take the turnout right before you get on the bridge when leaving the city. If you are lucky you can grab a parking space (we weren't) and grab a photo of the bridge that is amazing. You can pay for parking in the dozen or so sports... More
