Bridge walk

definitely walk across the bridge at least half way and take some incredible pictures. if renting a car go out of the city and take the first exit across the bridge and park.

After travelling North on the Bridge, we turned left onto the Hills where a complete view of the City and Bridge was in sight. The view is breathtaking from any location. Continuing the narrow road further you will have another breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. This is a must trip if you want to see the beauty of this... More

Recommend to visit on a sunny day and walk across the bridge. We walked from north vista point to south as from the north you can enjoy the beautiful view of San Francisco Bay. Along the bridge you can also enjoy the view of Alcatraz island.

The view of the bridge is so pretty, especially towards the sunset when the lights are reflecting off the bridge. Breathtaking...

Myself and my family(kids 17,15 and 10) hire ones from blazing saddles to do this trip, and what a trip it was. You need to be prepped for a 5 hour trip with a decent stop over on the other side for lunch. And loads of stopping for awesome photos. The ride is arduous at times but do not put... More

We visited the G G bridge at part of an open top bus tour ... the bridge is awesome and to travel over it and also pull over for photos is superb... if you're in SFO area then it's a must and the open top bus from fisherman's wharf is a nice way to do it as it also takes... More

A friend drove us over the bridge and we loved it. And a few nights later we were at a funky boat club that is next to the bridge. Beautiful lights. We could see a ferry boat crossing the bay too.

We decided to travel to Sn Francisco and Sausalito from Palo Alto (visiting mother on 95th Birthday) in PA. We couldn't have picked a better day as the weather was warm, clear and no wind. Yes that is right, warm, clear and not windy in November.

Can't believe I did it, but what an experience! Start at the gift shop and then walk all the way across. Return... DRESS WARMLY. It was cold and windy in July! Cars and busses detract from the experience but what fun and views. Iconic.
