Had planned on driving across bridge and running back to Fort Point. Everything worked out great, be prepared for crowded lot on both sides. Bridge was clean and safe, even police monitors in the middle. Early Sunday was great. Traffic was loud during the crossing.

The sight of the bridge at sunset was astounding. We watched it every evening from Fisherman's Wharf. This is a sight that every visitor to San Francisco must come and take a look at.

Stunning skyline views from the bridge. Whichever side you are on, you get amazing views of the city and it's worth visiting.

We were there on a sunny afternoon, a great time to walk across and back. Windy and loud, but no elevation change. Great views with visitors centers on both ends. Restrooms on both ends, but none in the middle! Bicycles take the west side. Walkers...More
