When we got to the bridge, I overheard someone say that we had a good day! no fog or low clouds so we were able to see the city, bridge, etc. It was super windy and much cooler than the city though. I would check the weather before going so you can bring the appropriate clothing. I would have liked... More

There are some structures in the world that you can't take enough pictures. This is one of them. You must see it from all angles and distance. The best view on my opinion was from the presidio park.

A San Francisco icon. Live in the S.F. peninsula and whenever any family/friends visit walking across the bridge is a must do and enjoyed by all. Also a drive to Fort Point at the foot of the bridge (S.F. side) for a great closeup under the bridge. Roads along the coast of the Presidio for other great views. Great in... More

Great way to see the bridge is to hire a bike, that way you can ride along the coast first. Lovely views from the bridge.

What can I say, if you're in San Francisco - The Golden gate Bridge is a must-see on your trip. Beautifully structured, well-maintained and the opportunity to walk across the bridge is very cool. We have this stop included with our hop on hop off tour and very much enjoyed this attraction. For comparison sake and also a beautiful bridge,... More

Spend a couple of days in San Francisco. There was absolutely no way I would go there without seeing that bridge. My friend and I took the ferry from the fisherman place, and got to see Alcatraz, the city and its hills and of course, the bridge. I got to learn so much about this bridge that makes it even...

I don't know, maybe it's because the fog rolled in and I couldn't see it in all its glory...but it was just a bridge. Glad I saw it, wouldn't say it was the most special thing I've ever done.

Read lots of reviews and decided to cross the bridge from San Fran and park in a free lot on the south side.....super easy to access and lots of parking. Easy access from here for our walk across (and... More

Love the history of this amazing feat. They dis a very good job of educating the public about how amazing this building of this bridge really is. The mix of hands on educational explanations and visuals such as photos and real tools used in the original building of the bridge is perfect. I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful place! Such...

I have been here many times but it was my first time to walk through it last Saturday. It was awesome walking through it! It took us almost an hour because of stopping along the way to take pictures. It was worth it! Good exercise too!!!
