Great bridge We all got sillily excited driving over the bridge, which was crowded with pedestrians and cars. It afforded great views of the city. However be aware of the toll booths on the way back and approach slowly - my hire car will now need some TLC and I'm still not talking to husband!

Took the hop on hop off buss to visitors center. Some informative displays of the bridge being built, huge gift shop, snack bar and restaurant. Easy access to walk bridge or bike the bridge. We have a great time, no fog and minimal wind. Bathroom lines are long but they are clean.

We parked our car in the parking lot at the north point of the bridge and walked all the way on the foot path of the bridge. The sky was partly cloudy. We were lucky to see sea lions on the foot of the bridge. Overall it was an unforgettable experience.

The gate was wonderful as always. A little busy, but not too bad. Going across mid morning I believe was a good time, although, late evening wasn't bad either. Catching the sunset off the bridge was breathtaking.

Really cool but that picture of the bridge from Full House is a rarity. Most of your pictures are going to have fog covering the top of the bridge. Still can't get enough pictures of that bridge, cool to drive over and experience.

Visited on a hot day. Great little walk(45) minutes across the bridge. Please bring water if it's a hot day or if you de hydrate. Was in the area for WrestleManin in Santa Clarita and came over here before. Great for selfies and scenic views. Across the other side you can get a ticket to trek round muir woods too

IF you are visiting the San Francisco Bay Area, you must take time to walk the magnificent GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE. The views are spectacular and it is a safe, comfortable walk. You can park in the SF Marina area, walk to the bridge, walk across it, walk around on the other side and take in the best of views. After... More

The best thing is to rent a bike at the pier and bike towards Sausalito and take the ferry back. Its a little windy and noisy on the bridge itself but the way over and back is beautiful.

We cycled across the Golden Gate, having rented bikes from downtown San Francisco. It was good to say we've done it but the wind would cut you in half!! Do not recommend cycling by the waterfront there or back as the gritty sand is tough to cycle on.

You can drive over it, but to really get the best views you should approach it on foot, or take a bay cruise that goes under the bridge. Have your camera ready! If you decide to walk across it be sure to take a jacket, it can get very cold once you're out over the water.
