“Golden Gate, Get that Picture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We were in San Francisco, so of course we had to go see the Golden Gate Bridge. It is worth the drive to see it. If you would like to get a good picture during daylight take it from the San Francisco Viewing side and at night take it from the opposite side to get the optimum picture.

“Simply breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

If the weather and time permits you must walk on the bridge...but if not, simply enjoying the views from any side is breathtaking. I visited the bridge both during the day and at night, enjoying the views from above the cliff, from below the bridge, and from across the bay. I was there in the rain, the strong mist, and also on sunny but chilly days...and each view, every time and each time had its own charms. So don't be discouraged by the weather and go for a drive anyway...you might thank me later!

“Fantastic to ride across on a sunny day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

I'd highly reccommend hiring a bike, taking a ride through Golden Gate Park, round the lands end area, up through Presidio and across the bridge to Sausalito and taking the Ferry back. Great way to spend a day and plenty of sights and places to stop at along the way.

“Gold and Glorious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Walking in the Marina and experiencing the magnificence of the Golden Gate Bridge where bay meets open water is breathtaking. No visit to San Francisco is complete until you've pondered this engineering achievement.
