Spectacular!

As a Civil Engineer, I'm always fascinated with bridges. This one is special! The views from both sides are awesome.

We did the classic bike over the bridge to Sausalito and back by ferry trip. The bridge is iconic and worth seeing. Biking over it is less exciting than looking at it but the overall trip can be recommended.

There was also a small park on the San Francisco side, but the iconic photos appear to have been taken from the Marin County side.

Awesome bridge - went on the hop-on/hop-off tour and traversed the bridge in both directions. Got some great pictures from under the bridge on a boat tour.

This manmade marvel should be seen from a variety of vistas, including the water. If you have the stamina and energy, walk across it to get a real feel of the expanse. She should be seen at different times of the day, in sunshine and fog. Lighting and angle from on high of below provide numerous photo ops. Don't just... More

How can one go to San Fran and not walk, bike, or drive across the Golden Gate. It's an absolute must. On this trip, we rode bikes (a number of places along the waterfront rent them and lead trips) across the bridge and then down to Sausalito. From there you take a ferry back to town. Wonderful and not to... More

I went there late in the afternoon, though it was a good view of the bridge and the overall of the SF city on the other bank of the river, it was bit windy and cold, so remember to bring a warm coat if you go late in the afternoon. The Big Bus has a stop at the bridge if... More

Although the view for us on our tour had the well known fog on the Bay it was still awesome to actually be there. The facilities at the park have been recently upgraded and these were very good. To see the size of the cables was amazing. Well worth the visit although we were at a busy traffic time on... More

The bridge is breathtaking, no reviews are really needed. The bridge is an awesome backdrop to any picture. It can be a little crowded at times and really cold so please remember to take a light jacket

wear a jacket though cause even in warm weather the wind rips across the bridge like you wouldn't believe. If you wont take the open top bus do pull over in the rest area so you can stop and really admire the bridge and the bay. Unfortunatly the fog didn't come in while I was in town so I never... More
