One of the most photographed structures in the world, Golden Gate Bridge is the first feature of San Francisco you'll see when driving in from the north. Opened in 1937, the structure boasted the longest suspension bridge main span until 1964. Still considered one of the world's greatest engineering feats, the bridge draws visitors with its numerous vantage points, from which you can see and photograph the picturesque bay and boats passing under the iconic structure's red towers. The bridge has sectioned-off pathways on each side for both pedestrians and cyclists, so you can take your time crossing and admiring the views. Though the bridge closes for pedestrians at night.

Golden Gate Bridge Reviews
Eternal, enduring, stately, iconic. Go early, go late, go at night, but just go. We cruised under the bridge on a bay tour, then went back for sunset. The only challenge is to take an original photo! more »
Tour to the vineyards of Nappa and Senoma. Early morning to see the bridge shrouded in must. Very atmospheric. more »
If you’ve never had a chance please go by the visitor center it’s really well done and A beautiful spot. The Golden Gate bridge gift shop has a really amazing selection of all kinds of things would be a great place to buy gifts for someone that has everything but loves our national Park System or Northern California they have cute shirts pens mugs cups.
Amazing place. One of the my favorite. I love to look at golden gate bridge from the bottom. There's a spot, called something like fort, under the golden gate bridge from San Francisco side. I love this place. But anywhere you take a picture it would be still perfect
