Took the 28 Bus to the Bridge to the Golden Gate. My wife and I walked across the Bridge and back again. The views of the city and Marin County are spectacular. The only problem is the bicycle traffic traveling near the people walking. You must be very careful not to get run into! This is a must see attraction.

A pity it is not as famous as The Golden Gate Bridge but nevertheless it is still very beautiful. You can have a good view of the bridge at the pier area.

To see the city, choose Bay Bridge instead of Golden Gate. Better view from Oakland to San Francisco due to the upper deck.

Even though this is not the most famous bridge in San Francisco, it is still a great place to be! Bay Bridge is impressive from most of its angles. It is a great place to go really early and see the sky changing colors. Or in the night, to see its light patterns shine.

Many tour buses provide a night tour. The Hop On Hop Off tour bus includes an evening tour of the city including a view of the bridge. The tour is timed to include the lighting of the bridge

replacing the damaged eastern span of the bay bridge, this elegant span is a great improvement, especially with the sweeping views of the bay

Viewed this from across the bay. A light installation creates a stunning effect, even from a distance. Apparently up close it's even better.

This bridge went from sturdy solid looking structure to OMG WOW! Drive it and you feel like your going through a time portal. You've gotta see it for yourself!
