From Fisherman's warf you can get great views of the bridge. However I recommend that you hire a bike and cycle over it. On the way to the bridge you will get to take in crissy field and along the coast line. Be warned there are a few big hills so you will need peddle power to get up there... More

This is a beautiful bridge that you can take pictures of all over the area. There is a walking area on the bridge that pedestrians can use to walk over the bridge.

If you are close by any way then you just have to appreciate this historical icon. The "gateway" into historical California! I'm glad to have traveled over it 2 times. Just to say I've been. If you do stop to appreciate the time and effort put into the bridge then it's all worth while. the park is a nice viewing... More

On this visit I made two trips to the bridge ( I love to walk across it). The first was after lunch and totally chaotic! Too many people, two many cyclists .... So much so, that it was impossible to relax and soak in the sights and energy. The second was about 9AM...not many at all, plenty of room to... More

Title says it all. It is one of the icons of this great city. Drive it, walk it, ride a bike over it, lots of ways to experience it, but just do it!

Great picture, great views. You will not forget it. I loved even the fog embracing the bridge. Very windy and cold place ... Be prepared.

I visited the Bridge in an open top city sight seeing bus. It was a great experience. Be careful, it gets very windy up there !

We hired bikes and cycled up to the bridge (there are a few biggish hills) but once you are there it is well worth it for the amazing views. It does get very busy in parts so expect to use the bike bell quite a bit and you have to choose where to stop and take in the views. The... More

Magnifical structure, but it was cloudy and almost all the bridge was hidden. Still, when travelling by car, it is possible to see it from one of the vista points located at the hills behind the Gate. Also it is very windy there, and appr.3-4 grad colder than in the city.

I have been to San Francisco several times and have seen the golden gate bridge from afar but finally decided to drive over the bridge this last trip and I was amazed. The bridge really is an amazing engineering marvel. You have to visit the bridge up close to truly appreciate how incredible it really is. It's high up above... More
