An obvious must see in frisco, but a bit of a let down. A nice walk across, a viewing point for photos but not equal to the hype from Hollywood movies

Bicycling over GG to Sosialito was a great memory from first time visiting Sf. Doing again was great ...again. A big recommendation to do. A really WOW experience.

Make the effort to walk to Fort Point through the Presidio. Apart from the fact that you will see the bridge from close quarters, the area around Fort Point is a beautiful nature reserve with loads of wildlife, as well as lovely beaches with picnic tables. Driving across the bridge is also a great experience - make sure you have... More

Amazing to drive over this iconic landmark, but even better to be able to ride over on an amazingly clear day. Well worth a visit, just watch out for the nutters riding too fast for their ability on the rental bikes!

To stand at the viewing point and look at this magnificent structure takes your breath away...based on time of day, the light adds to the mystique of the red bridge against the backdrop of the blue bay. This is 'man and nature' art:) On a practical level, carry your thick jackets, it gets super duper breezy at times and kids... More

A harbor Cruise to see the bridge and hear it's history is highly recommended. Though we did not take the tour - a bicycle tour across the bridge is now offered. If we'd had more time and had known about the bicycle tour ahead of time, we would have tried it. check it out at least.

Make sure you cross the bridge out of SFO, take a left and drive up to the best view point for the bridge!

We made our way to the Golden Gate Bridge by bus which took us right to the start of the walk. It was a beautiful warm clear day and we enjoyed every step of our walk across the bridge. We were a bit surprised that the safety fence didn't go all the way across the bridge as it does on... More

You'll never see anything like it. Even though the day was cloudy you can still be wow'd and appreciate the architecture and views from the bridge. We went at sunset and the sun peeked out a bit. The only thing that was slightly disappointing was only walkers can go up and down the same way. As a walker you can't... More
