This is one of the most beautiful bridges in the world! And easiest to enjoy too – parking is sufficient, observation points are convenient and crowd is not too bad.

Amazing site - the top was enveloped in mist at first but it started to clear. Fantastic views. We stopped for a while and then just drove back over

Local friends suggested we hire bikes and ride across the Golden Gate Bridge through to Sausalito, and come back by ferry. Fantastic day, the weather was nice, although I'm sure it can be extremely variable. The bike paths aren't too strenuous if you're not much of a rider, and certainly Sausalito is well worth the time to wander about and... More

The parks on either side of the bridge are the place for viewing. Go up into the hills on the oppside and into the Presidio on the SF side.

Its a bridge and it is huge! Fun to walk over with an incredible view. I don't know about biking when its busy but otherwise that would be great. Something you'll like to see at least once!

I guess since I've seen it already on a previous trip, it didn't do as much for me this time. I will say driving across it is still quite impressive, it was too chilly the day we were there to walk across it with the strong winds.

An essential for visiting San Francisco but if you are driving across the bridge from North to South be aware that although it is a toll bridge you cannot pay at the booths! You have to either ring a number o go online to pay, we only found this out by accident as when we drove over the details are... More

You will want to either walk or bike across, because driving traffic moves so fast a you would not really appreciate it. Also you have to pay a toll to drive across. We walked as far as the first tower. Its an amazing feat of engineering and a great view of San Francisco, the bay and Alcatraz.

Its nice enough, but no pictures that you take will compare to what's available on line from professionals. Drove across it, drove back, didn't fall in. Yep, its a bridge.
