the lessor known cousin to the golden gate

This bridge is a great second act to the Golden Gate. At night it is very photogenic from the pier area of San Francisco.

The updated 25,000 LED lights make this landmark another San Francisco treasure. Magical lights twinkle in various patterns in the night sky

The San Francisco Bay Bridge was a majestic way to enter San Fransisco. It was also expensive. We were pretty shocked at the $6 toll we had to pay. But, it is what it is.

We actually got engaged with the bay bridge behind us so it had to get a 5 rating! In honesty though it really is beautiful particularly at night and you get some lovely views from the wharf and piers. Going over it on the way to treasure island is a great experience just so you can appreciate the size!

You can have an amazing view of the city when you´re going towards SF. Big bridge, very comfortable to drive in.

Perhaps the step-child of bridges here, but nonetheless captivating and offering great views of the city, including Alcatraz and Oakland.

You cant come to San Fransisco and not see the Golden Gate Bridge. We travelled over it a couple of times on a bus tour. The stop at Sauciitto end was well worth it. An ideal place to take photos. Definitely worth the visit.

We loved this bridge more than Golden Gate Bridge. They were built within 6 months of each other and so different!

Watching NY fireworks from the SFO Bay Bridge promenade is a once in a lifetime experience. Luxury Yachts in the harbour and take a cruise to Alcatraz in the afternoon to enjoy the view of the bridge from the water.
