“Must see in San Francisco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you've never been to San Francisco or been there often - the Golden Gate Bridge is a must see! We crossed it on the upper level (open) deck of an open air sightseeing bus and it was amazing!!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Walk the bridge for an exhilarating experience but hold on to your hat! Alternative is the useful hop on hop off bs which takes you across the bridge.

“Make sure and go to Vista Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Everyone has seen pics of the Golden Gate bridge, but until you get up close you will noy appreciate it. The pics I took almost looked like a painting with the red of the bridge blending with the blue water. Walking across the bridge gives you an amazing view of the Bay and SF. Love visiting here

“Legend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I really can't imagine anybody stay in SF and doesn't want to see the magnificent structure. It is absolutely magical. You hire a bike from many places in the Fisherman's wharf or use the city bus tour purple line. Whatever you do not miss it. Try to walk the bridge even for a few hundred yards.

“No other bridge like it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Definitely worth putting up with the wind to walk over once in a lifetime. The views are amazing, of course. Pick a really clear blue sky day and go!
