“Loved it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

It's definitely worth a trip. If you walk down to the base of the bridge you might get to see dolphins. It's a lovely photo shot & there are some interesting facts at the outside exhibition. The fog rolls in really quickly so try to go in the day to see it properly.

“Obviously a must-see, but walk or bike rather than driving.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

It's goes without saying that you should visit this when in SF, but what we really enjoyed was getting there.

Having visited Alcatraz in the morning, we decided to grab a quick lunch then walk along the edge if the bay to get to GGB. It takes about 1hr 30mins, walking around the Marina and then following the SF Bay Trail, giving some brilliant views of the bridge as you approach, as well as the city and houses you go past. It can change between t-shirt and sweatshirt weather depending on if the wind blows, but it's a lovely walk or cycle to do.

In some ways the views looking at the bridge is better than the view from the bridge, so take your time getting their and avoid the temptation of just driving to it.
