San Francisco is the Golden Gate bridge. Beautiful. Went over on one of the open topped double decker buses so perfect to take in the view.

Pictures do not do this bridge justice, it must be experienced. Use the restroom before you walk, it can take a bit of time to cross the bridge with all the stops for pictures.

It's a brown bridge but that's not attractive so they called it golden. If you have ever seen the Humber Bridge in England, it is identical. There's nothing spectacular about this bridge, it's just a bridge that goes across the bay. There is a toll charge on it and there is talk about charging people to walk across it.

Easy to walk it but wish we would have rented some bikes instead to make the trip into Salsalito quicker

Do you really need to read reviews to decide whether or not to visit this amazing site??!! If you drive here, parking is relatively easy to find as long as you are willing to take a 5-7 min walk. New parking meter allows you to pay by cash, credit card, or debit card. You can decide how many minutes you... More
