“You Must Do This at Least Once in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Awesome experience and great views…just be aware…if you decide to walk all the way across (like my husband convinced me to do) there is no way to get back other than to call a cab or to walk.

“Beautiful city landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The Golden Gate Bridge is a beautiful San Francisco landmark - majestic, even in the fog. It is best viewed up close from the South Vista Point.

“A Modern Icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

A modern Icon in this beautiful city. Drive across and pull into the viewing area on the Marin County side, the view of both the bridge and the city from there is simply amazing. It will be the finest free view of your holiday.

“Cool but busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

It's a no brainer that a visit to San Francisco should include a trip to the Golden Gate Bridge. Be warned though, the viewing areas on each side are insanely busy. The lines for parking spaces were very long so I'd recommend that if you go, take a tour bus of some kind so you don't have to fight for hours.

Other than that, it's just something that has to be seen.

“One and the only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

There can't be a discussion - this is just must see. Strange, it does not sing, dance, talk - it just stands there silent, but crossing it says more than You could ask for. Walk, drive or ride it, just be sure not to forget a camera. Try to pick a day without fog (what can be really hard task in SF), but the clear view from across the bay will be priceless.
