This bridge is iconic. It truly is beautiful. We learned the bridge history while doing a Harbour cruise with blue and gold. On this cruise you actually get to go under the bridge and see its understructure. It is very windy in this area which must have been one of the challenges the engineers must have dealt with when building... More

Walked it, drove it, took pictures of it during the day and night. Love it! Make sure you definitely see it on a clear evening. :)

We didn't get to spend much time here, but we drove over it. The views are amazing. The bridge itself is awe inspiring in size and design. I've driven over some bridges and this one was the bridgiest. Wish we would have spent more time. Biking is a great activity if you're active. Obviously worth a stop in and I'm... More

I've always seen pictures of this iconic bridge; but, I can honestly say, this thing is WOW in real life. I mean, seriously, it's huge! It's massive! It's breath taking. Strongly recommend going. Rent a bike (not the 30 minute city bikes either, like a bike from a bike shop bike). Also, don't waste your money going over it, unless... More

At the bike rental they give you a BRIEF tutorial (try to pay attention to... More

Hop on hop off bus takes you over the bridge, turns around and brings you back to rejoin the route. Worth it to save your feet and get some fantastic photos.

I live in the Bay Area but I never get tired of visiting (and taking out of town guests) to see the Golden Gate. There are so many varying view points - each one offering a more gorgeous view than the last. Don't miss the opportunity to see one of the wonders of the world.
