This is a fabulous monument to ingenuity. Awe-inspiring and always worth a visit. Take a jacket - a bit fresh even in summer.

Just have to do it I guess. It was all we expected. A good view from the ferry ride back as well. Need a clear day which is difficult here - we were lucky this time - our second visit.

Picture postcard day for viewing the Golden Gate .... Sea mist and all ..... Great to walk to the first Pylon ... Sun out but still fresh winds. Biggest issue was the numbers of bikes sharing the path with the pedestrians .... Amazed to see people surfing at the base of the Bridge..... Not exactly the Pipeline ...

A definite for anyone visiting San Fran. It's a whole day adventure. I recommend an electric bike if your focus is the views rather than sweating it out! Head to Sausalito but make a stop off at Marin Headlands on the way!

Of course, every time we're visiting the City, my husband and I either drive or walk across this beautiful, iconic bridge!! You have to do it!! You can bike across it, too, but I haven't done that yet. We drove across two days ago, on Sunday, before we left town. It was foggy that afternoon, but it doesn't matter! It's... More

Loved all of the trails and different views of the bridge. There is a gift shop and restrooms available. You can walk the trails or bike them.

Enjoyed driving through the Golden Gate Bridge.......you get to see the fog up in person and a nice view of the bay. No worry, even if you saw a sign stated "$241 fine - if no ez tag & do not stop - keep traffic moving".......Enjoy the ride. As soon as you cross the bridge - just check in at... More

We rode the Gray Line, Hop ON-Hop Off tour. It included the Golden Gate Bridge. The first tour guide talked more about him self than the Bridge. After some other stops we got another tour guide and we went back over the bridge and learned about the Golden Gate Bridge. My hint for this tour company, if you take this... More

Chicago has nothing over San Francisco bay! Beautiful view and worth the toll just to say you drive across. You can sign up to pay the toll online and they have a nice set up even for rental cars!

What can you say about the Golden Gate Bridge that hasn't already been said? It was windy, noisy, crowded, and wonderful! We were there on a Friday morning, but it was warming and clearing. We dodged lots of bikes, but were able to make our way out and found a spot to enjoy. Plan to look at the cross section... More
