This is a great bridge and has to be walked to enjoy this true icon. We drove over the bridge and drove up Conzelmans Rd to get a great view of the bridge. What is nice from these vista points is that you get San Francisco directly behind the bridge. Very worth the drive.

The bay is so diverse...with attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, SF's amazing China town, and AT&T park there is something for everyone. It is a super diverse place and if you love to people watch the city is a great place for you....not to mention the amazing food around every corner...what I love is the peninsula, all the small...

There's a reason I set down roots in this city and it never disappoints from world-class dining to various parks and nature areas to the thriving bar and arts scene.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. I love the Bay Area and driving along the bridge to see both sides is good but it's better to walk or ride a bike. Parking can be crazy!!! So have plan B and C on parking.
