A unique experience, especially looking west over the ocean at sundown.

You need to know that it's a long walk from one end to the other, so be prepared! No dogs, either! It is nearly always windy, head gear advised.

It was an amazing experience walking across the bridge!! I actually wanted to take a jog, but it was a busy day and there wasnt much room for a jog, but the views were amazing, great photo opportunities, and just a wonderful experience.

Crowded but a must when visiting San Francisco... Great for the whole family even with kids. It is better to go early in the morning especially on a nice day to beat the crowd.

It's hard to beat the history, engineering, architecture and scenic beauty that the Golden Gate Bridge provides all at once. The negatives would have to be the cold winds, fog and crowds. In my own experience from living in San Francisco, it seems the best times to visit the bridge are mid-late afternoon (as the fog seems more likely in... More

Spending time in the SAN Francisco area would not be complete without walking across the GG Bridge! Fun way to see the bay and experience the majesty of the bridge. Best way is to drive from SF to Marin, park and walk back and forth. It's cold and windy up on the bridge so dress warm! Great Vistas for photo... More

Seems rather silly that I even have to say this but you MUST drive across (yes, spend the money on the toll) and walk as far across as you can.

They have a parking area near this but it was closed. We drove over to the presidio area and there was parking near some soccer fields and grass, with a meter fee that you could prepay with a credit card. $1.20 per hour. It was a 10 minute walk from where we parked though. Not for older travelers. Excellent information... More

We visited this San Francisco Btidge area, really enjoyed the magnificent engineering work and fine workmanship of the Bridge, the views were pretty awesome! Saw some people down under the bridge in wetsuits surfing, the surroundings are quite spectacular. San Franci itself was very neat and tidy, street had no litter, clean City!

Been to the Golden Gate Bridge tons of time. Never a boring sight. Still takes my breath away. Beautiful place. Seems to symbolize the actual melting pot of the USA.

Arrived by Uber on a Sunday. Parking lot was a mad house. The view of the Bridge and surrounding area is truly stunning. We walked out about a quarter of they way on the bridge. There were lots of people on the bridge and nearby paths. I will definitely return.
