Great views of San Francisco Bay. Terrific photo ops. I like to walk the bridge on sunny days. It can be cold and windy occasionally. Also visit Fort Point under the SF end of the bridge

If you cross it by car, waste of time. If you cross by walk or bike good, nice. If I had only seen GGB I might rate very good but I have seen better ones. However, it is a good bridge to go to Sausalito...More
