To celebrate our golden wedding anniversary which was on the 27th March 2015, we decided to stay in Sanfrancisco and walk the golden gate bridge. We arrived at our hotel on the 8.4.2015. We thought of hiring cycles to access the bridge but decided to walk instead. We set off on the 10.4.15 catching two buses, the first from fishermans... More

It is such a majestic sight from many spots in San Francisco and so iconic. Crossing the bridge is a experience either by foot, bike or car. We have walked some before and crossed this time by shuttle. It was still breath taking to be able to see downtown, Alcatraz and the bay. Lovely no matter what the weather.

If you are coming by car it's easy enough to park for a bit on either side of the bridge parking lot for a close up visit of the bridge. You can even walk or bike across which we did not do since we had an extra windy day while in the area. I hear the view from the bridge... More

I know it may be a bit obvious, but just do this! Walk from one side to the other and back a just take in those magnificent views. You won't regret it.

Amazing to see this bridge in person. Being from Wales UK this is once in a lifetime for me. Seeing the bridge on movies and then I'm actually driving across it is mind blowing.

Traveling with my family, everyone got excited by the beauty of San Francisco, its hills, and, of course, the Golden Gate. It is a warm place, full of culture, funny, light. Children got a walk on the bridge. It was so great

My wife and I cycled across the bridge and what an experience. The views of the bridge before reaching it are great! They get even better the closer you get! While crossing take time to scan the bay. The water current is visibly FAST, boats and ferries are plentiful, the views of the mountains are great! We even saw a... More

Drove over the bridge coming back from Sausalito at night. Quite spectacular with all the lights and a good clear view of the city. Took a boat tour around and under the bridge a few days later, a little misty but still good fun. At the end of the day it is just a bridge but good to do and... More

Drove through the Golden Gate Bridge plenty of times before actually stopping to check it out. On TV/movies it seemed like this huge massive bridge, unfortunately, I was less than impressed seeing it in person. Its just a well constructed bridge they painted orange. Walking across took way longer than expected if u get there before 3:30pm prepare to be... More

You can't go to San Fran and not spend some time taking pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. Big Bus Tours will take you across and drop you off at a visitors centre where you can take pictures and enjoy the scenery until the next bus comes. Great views!
