This vista point is iconic, this is the view seen on television.Sun or fog, the site is always spectacular. Drawback, too many autos, crazy drivers and crowds. Go off time; winter, early morning.

Great place to catch the sunset, but i'd recommend getting there earlier than you think to find parking. There were only about 8 parking spots so be patient and wait for someone to leave. Most people don't stay long. They get their instagram story and...More

It hard to get a photo because the place is packed. The angle from the San Francisco side is nicer. The ferry back to San Francisco gives you a chance to get a better photo.

We had cycled across the bridge and stopped off here on our way back to our hotel. It really is a very good view of the bridge!

Terrific overall view of bay and city. There is a photo opportunity where the bridge's towers align perfectly to the south for a different view. Restrooms are available. Our stop was part of a Princess Cruises shore excursion by motor coach. Parking might be a...More

The views of the Bridge and the memorial to the Lone Sailor are brilliant. It can be very busy and it may take some time to get that perfect shot - but it is worth it. Keep an eye on your belongings - there are...More

Yes but up hill all the way. Narrow roads if riding a bike. Young or fit would like this yet would pass at my age.
