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.

  • What an amazing structure. An icon of engineering that you can walk on and touch. Strolling across it was easy and gave fantastic photo opportunities back to the city. It took us about an hour from...

  • The best way to experience the majesty of the Golden Gate Bridge is to walk over it. Wait for a sunny day...it is spectacular.

  • Its a very awesome scenic spot. Great place to take pictures. The views are awesome. Definitely worth a visit during San Francisco trip. Definitely enjoyed my visit to the bridge. Everyone in the family can enjoy. Usually lot of people as it is a famous touristic spot.
  • Beautiful scenic bridge. I came in January so it was a little breezy, a light jacket would be perfect. I saw this bridge from so many different angles, unintentionally, and it was breathtaking each time I saw it. There are many paths to walk/bike, and even with hundreds of people around, you could still enjoy the area without feeling crowded. I didn't walk the bridge because I didn't have enough time to do so but there is a walking path if you're interested.
