Take a cruise under the Golden Gate; take a bus tour over the Bridge. It's great whichever way you look at it.

It's a beautiful bridge. Dress warm if going at night or in winter days! Don't forget to bring cameras and take lots of pictures.

Luckily went across this in clear weather on a tour bus so got amazing views. Later in the trip went again and it was heavily misted up so it can be a bit of a lottery. You can't miss this though

Like many people, our family biked across the bridge from San Francisco and took the ferry back from Sausalito. Great fun, but cold and windy -- don't forget to dress appropriately!

Yes, the fog has a name, Karl. Karl even has his own Twitter account. Anyway, Karl straight up wasn't going to let us have our photo op with the bridge this trip. We've gone to both sides of the bridge every day on our trip (3days) and have not once been able to see the bridge. We've even gone at... More

Be prepared it was very windy the day we did it and San Fransisco can be cold even in July. Fantastic to see the bridge up close and personal. Fantastic views. Sausalito was very pretty and the ferry ride back gave us a great view of Alcatraz. Do a bit of checking prices before you go as they can vary.... More

Take the cruise that goes under the bridge. It is a modern marvel of America. Pay attention to the weather, often you can't see it because of fog.

If you've never traveled across the Golden Gate Bridge, do it. The fog, the bay, the tall orange towers; it's such a feeling of freedom.

Pictures do not do this slice of Americana justice. To stand out on the bridge and overlook the bay, Alcatraz, and the city is amazing. Around mid-afternoon the fog cleared a bit and we could see for miles. Make sure to bring an extra jacket because even in summer the temp is in the 50's and very windy. To walk... More

The bridge is so beautiful and big! There are so many different viewing areas, all of them are breathtaking! We went in the begining of July and we wore pants and light jackets. I think it is so cool when the fog rolls in. this is a must see!
