We took the amazing boat cruise to and under the bridge, and it was a great cruise and a beautiful bridge. The boat cruise was so relaxing and very well narrated, in my opinion it was the very best way to view and experience the bridge, and also get the history of the bridge.

For something that we have seen so many times in pictures, it is easy to take this engineering marvel for granted. However, standing at the foot of the bridge, it's majesty is apparent. There seem to be several great vantage points, but I found Fort Point to be the easiest to get to. Additionally, Fort Point offers easy access to... More

Rode across on tour bus and stopped on other side for great views of the city and bay! A must do for anyone visiting SF.

It'll be very difficult for you to not see or use the Golden Gate Bridge if you're visiting the Bay Area. There are tours that will take you to the bridge so that you can walk over, I've done that in the past but on this trip we drove.

Again, a must do while in San Francisco. We took the bus which dropped us off at the visitor's center. We enjoyed some shopping and historical reading and then we walked the bridge. It is truly a novel experience and one that if you are visiting San Francisco, you should not miss.

This iconic infrastructure constructed during the Great Depression needs to be viewed from all angles. My first view was from beneath, on a Bay cruise. Then I saw it from a vehicle window when whizzing across to Sausalito. But the most impressive is walking onto this impressive bridge, though dizzying heights made me a bit queasy. For photo buffs, any... More

Awesome experience to walk the bridge! Very windy,though. If you can, continue walking to Sausilito. Lovely town!

You have to see it!!!! I cycled over the bridge from Fisherman's Wharf, which on the way to it is quite hilly and my mum had to get off her bike a couple of times. But the view is absolutely incredible and there's nothing like it. I cycled with my music in and just felt totally free. There are lots... More

Very iconic and fun to walk across. I recommend walking northbound and taking a bay ferry back to the city! Do NOT rent the bicycles unless it's a slow day on the bridge. You will be frustrated at your inability to stop and take photos as well as the hoards of pedestrians in your path.
