Golden gate bridge

This is one of the most popular attractions. To be honest once you're on it, it's a quick ride and over before you know it. But it is an amazing feature for sure.

I took the bus to the Golden Gate Visitor Center parking lot and walked across the bridge around 7:30 am. I was alone on the pedestrian walkway going over, but met a few tourists on the return walk. I also watched a big cargo ship pass under the bridge. The morning light shining on the orange bridge towers and the... More

We walked from Union Square to the GGB which was good to see the inner city plus get some much needed exercise. As you approach the bridge you get great views of it as it gets closer and closer. It's a magnificent piece of man made structure and at the info centre you can read up on how they made... More

This a really big bridge with a lot of history. I thought it would be painted gold but it is red. Information at overlook is brief but well written. The gold part has to do with location not color. The Golden Gate Park had flood issues from rain so we might have learned more about the bridge if we had... More

The bridge was beautiful and we got to cross it 4 times on our bus tour. Definitely need to dress up warm particularly if sitting upstairs on an open top bus

We enjoyed waking access the bridge and back. It was very windy that day but the bridge did not feel like it was moving as we walked across it.

Hard to be in San Fran and not see this beautiful bridge with its views. We drove on it and stopped to take pictures -- but if the weather was better (drier and warmer), I would have enjoyed walking across.

It is my dream from 50 years ago. I learned about the Golden Gate when I was 11 years old in text book English for Today. I think you understand how I feel when a dream comes true. The best of all

A trip to San Francisco is not complete unless you visit the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. It is as spectacular as it looks in the movies and great to walk across.
