Always dreamed of seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. I have now travelled over in by road and watched the sun going down from the sea. It is a wonderful sight for people of a certain age it takes you back to all the 60s music. Get on the bus and have a trip. The boat ride is great and extra... More

We drove across it twice. Each time, it was sunny. I had to drive, so I couldn't enjoy it as much as I would have liked. My daughter was taking pictures the whole way across. It was nice to finally see something I'd heard about my whole life. Maybe I'll take a tour of it while I'm here in SF.

In all we went across the bridge 6 times in the 3 days we were in San Francisco. We stopped once at the end/beginning at the vantage point but one driver took us up a road to a point overlooking the bridge. The problem this day was the fog was moving in and covered all but the towers most of... More

Rent a bike and cross the bridge cycling! There are places where you can stope to take pictures. The wind can be quite strong there, so don't forget to bring a jacket! Awesome views and a great place to spend the afternoon/morning.

Our family of four hired bikes from one of the groups at Fisherman's wharf today and rode across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Great weather so we had excellent views all the way. Had lunch and caught the ferry back, great fun had by all. If you are intending to do this trip with kids, I recommend looking into... More

An icon to mark the passage to the states on the West Coast. If time allows, plan to view the bridge during different times of the day. Make a point to stop and walk across or at least stand on it.

This is a MUST see whenever you come visit San Francisco. Golden Gate Bridge is the icon of San Francisco. It is rare to see the bridge when it is nice and sunny but when it is the right weather, it is one of the best views to see. I cannot stress the necessity of going there and witnessing it.... More

Well, let's see, I thought it was very impressive as the largest /longest suspension bridge perhaps in the world? However, it was very crowded and I felt freaked out a bit, to be honest. I probably wouldn't recommend it , if you had to skip something in San Francisco, for me, it would probably be it; however, my husband said... More

An immense and awe inspriring beauty. Simple parking facilities provide (free) and very close to the bridge. The only drawback was the weather. We had to view on a cloudy and rainy day. Our pictures did not come out as sharp as they would if it had been clear. Still well worth the effort and great to see such a... More

Drove through GG, on the way to Wine Country. Never tired of great views. Well worth the traffic and tourists.
