..It's just a bridge, right? Maybe so, but I couldn't get enough of it. I don't know why it was so special but it truly is a magnificent sight. We drove over it ~ oneway toll to pay. There are two viewing areas on the...More

Maybe I went on the wrong day (nice and clear) but there wasn't much to shout about here. In addition, the transport links to get up there aren't too hot. We walked from Fisherman's Wharf to the bridge along the Marina. This must have been...More

The lanes are quite narrow, and the traffic is heavy. A little scary driving inches off the barrier and the car next to you. Good views for the passenger.

The Golden Gate Bridge is truly the "Golden Beacon" of San Francisco. It is hard to even explain in words how majestic, stunning and, inspiring this landmark is. It is truly the beacon of San Francisco, California, and the west coast of the United States....More

Views to it from the mainland are spectacular, I couldn't stop taking photos! I decided to walk across to the other side but with the amount of traffic I wondered why! However I can say I've done it both ways.

We traveled over the Golden Gate Bridge two times during our 18 day road trip. The bridge, of course, is amazing and it was a great experience getting to finally see it. However, the so called "Fasttrack" to pay the toll was terrible. Both times...More

Traffic can be dangerous on the backside as you descend from Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Narrow street and distracted drivers.
