Owner description: Stretching 4,200 feet and towering as high as a 65-story building, this well-known bridge is the gateway to San Francisco.

To fully appreciate the bridge and all it encompasses, one needs to either walk across it or cycle across it...driving across it, doesn't allow one to see its majesty from various perspectives. Additionally, the views back into San Francisco on one side and out into the bay/Marin Highlands on the other are truly magnificent.

Bikes are easy to rent, and there are wonderful bike/walking paths up to the bridge from the city. One fun trip that many do is to rent a bike, cycle across the bridge and into Sausalito. From there you can take the ferry back to the Ferry Building or Fisherman's Wharf after spending time in many interesting shops or nice restaurants.

You can't miss. Not sure about walking across, would be long. Easy drive back and forth. There is a great spot at the bridge to take pictures but very little parking. You can see about everywhere if you are close to water. There is no where to park on the bridge.

It was really wonderful to take the bay cruise that went under the Golden Gate Bridge. The boat ride was a little windy so bring a scarf and a light jacket if you get chilled easy. I was delighted to see the bridge in person. It's even bigger an more beautiful than I imagined.

We walked on it a bit and road over it several times. We even went under part of it when we visited Fort Point at the Presidio. A must do.

If you go over the golden gate on the open top tour bus make sure it is a hot day because the arctic breeze hits you and it is very cold.
Well worth the effort and was part of a tour bus route, unfortunately the bus broke down and the trip was cut short but the bridge part was worth it.
