Great place to ride a bike over and sight see around the coastal area. Do yourself a favour and hire a bike, the best way to experience this great bridge.

We headed across the bridge like thousands of other tourists.... an amazing sight! Once across the bridge be sure to get out at the viewing area for some photos and to look back across to the city. Beautiful. If we had more time we would have hired bikes and enjoyed biking it, but this was a good second option.

The Golden Gate Bridge spends a lot of time hidden by mist. A bus ride across the bridge is one of the best ways to see it. There is also great opportunities for photographs from the parks at each end.

Rent an e-bike (electric) - shop around, they are very competitive and you can haggle. It was one of the highlights of our trip! So much fun!!

Passed the bridge a few times. Very good views of the city and bay.No toll counters on bridge. Very unfriendly for visitors forces you to buy a tool package at rent a car company.

Great views and facilities but the shop is a bit gimmicky which is expected. Buses run often from the city so get on the MUNI.

If you are in San Fransisco you must visit the Golden Gate Bridge. It's one of the most recognisable structures in the world. If you don't, it's like going to Rome and seeing the Colosseum. Do walk across it, if you can , it takes about half an hour c

It was fun to see it from the top of the Tour bus. We did get very cold and came away with new hair-dos!

Get a 48 hour hop-on-hop-off Bus package and see the whole city - they take you over the Bridge and back (plus a night tour) BRING a jacket esp. for night tour wind off the Pacific is FREEZING. ITS A MUST see in SF.

Follow the beach front for a mile or so and enjoy the open spaces - visit the old battery and get some great photos from underneath the bridge and higher up at the Bride display area.
