“A MUST SEE AND WALK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Nice parking areas on the north and south end. Convenient restrooms, parking is free on the north end, but must pay $6 toll to return on bridge. New visitors center on south end is no replacement for the quaint store it replaced. The new one is too pricey and little selection. Take the time to walk the bridge, if possible.

“Impossible to rate. Its exciting just to drive over it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Impossible to rate. Its exciting just to drive over it! There are few more well known landmarks in the bay area. It is always fun to drive, walk or cycle it. A definite must do!

This is one of the most well known land marks in the U.S. Everyone should see this at least once in a life time.

“California Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This year we are hosting 2 Exchange Students. The Golden Gate Bridge has a huge history here in the USA as well as abroad. I loved showing them this beautiful piece of eye-candy. The Golden Gate has really stood the test of time. The grounds around it are well maintained and the staff were very helpful. My fear of heights took a back seat when I drove across this National Treasure. I am truly marveled by this structure and am very proud to have visited again at this stage in my life.

“Top experience and landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We both wre driven over the bridge and then went back and rode pushbikes over it both ways. It really is a great experience riding over the bridge, looking down at it from Marin Headland and just generally seeing it from so many places whie travelling around the city. If you can, hire a bike and ride over it.
