Just as I imagined it, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay is just wonderful. We drove across it on our tour (didn't walk it) but we did park down by the beach area for some photos, we then drove up Marin Headlands, the hilly peninsula located just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge (a must for the best view of all, the view from my photos). But overall, not to disapoint but it is just a bridge, lol. I guess for some whom never seen a bridge that size it would be overwhelming but I don't know, I've been across lot's of bridges and was basically no different than crossing the Ambassador Bridge from Canada to Michigan, lol. Still it's a must see when visiting San Fran, amazing views of the Bay.
