This is a must see if you go to San Fransisco. The Golden gate is beautiful anytime of the day, or night. I love to see it from the water. You can also drive it, walk it, or bike it. Enjoy it.

The golden gate bridge is an iconic structure which is the trademark of San Francisco. Despite its age, the bridge is still gorgeous. I recommend going both during the day and at night. You can walk the bridge if you like, but I prefer a drive through and pictures of the bridge from a nearby park

Whether you walk or drive, you have to see the Golden Gate Bridge. A lot of people walk or jog across the bridge with walkways provided for safety and others drive it. We had a sunroof and that made for great photos. Traffic can be heavy at times both walking and driving. The bridge offers beautiful and scenic views of... More

If the weather permits everyone should visit this bridge. It is immense! The bridge is over a mile each way and took us around 45 to go over, and 30 minutes to come back. It offers a stunning view across the bay to Alcatraz and the city so we stopped and took a lot of photos. Once over you are... More

I guess everybody visiting San Francisco for the first time will want to get up close to this iconic bridge...and will not be disappointed. Use Bus 28 from beyond Fisherman's Wharf. It is a breath-taking spectacle; especially the 'orange' colour against the blue of the sea & sky and the green of the headlands. Great piece of 'visible' engineering! It... More

A fascinating history on the building of the bridge is in the visitors centre & shop. You can then progress(walk) across the bridge if you wish.

Its a magnificent structure indeed and when you see it, the impact is great. However having seen other rope bridges you need to read bit of history to appreciate it fully. The era it was built, challenges to build and importance. The orange colour is appealing and understand it costs a fortune to maintain it. A walk on the bridge... More

My daughter and I were on a road trip, driving up the coast of California. We had done some research, and decided that we wanted to park on the north side of the bridge, Vista Point. We arrived about 1:00 pm or so, and didn't have any trouble finding a parking spot. Lots of people were out. It was the... More
