Breathtaking views from the roadside stops, but even better views if you look around the area for numerous other vantage points. Be adventurous and seek out other places to see the bridge. Note: The toll to cross the bridge is not cheap so don't go...More

It’s free to take the bridge Northbound but you have to pay to come Southbound. Be sure to have your camera ready long before you reach the bridge because there are tons of photo ops.

The day we wanted to go was very cold and windy but we went anyway. The walk to the viewing area was worth it. Stunning scenery, do yourself a favour and walk along the small coastal track for better views and photos.

An amazing place to check out on a hire bike...go electric as you will enjoy it more! We had a ball! A must do bucket list item. December was an amazing time as well with cool weather at sunset.

Traffic can be dangerous on the backside as you descend from Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Narrow street and distracted drivers.
