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.

The bridge is spectacular and its surroundings are impressive. The north side has a number of amazing lookouts and easy parking and access to walk / bike onto the bridge. Beautiful at sunset.

we were lucky and saw this magnificent bay with no fog. It was clear as could be. There were cruise ships and smaller boats and touring vessels and you can see Alcatraz

We walked from the Tram, it was a hot day, loved the walk over the bridge but would be very helpful at the end if there was A Cafe or little shop to sell water.

A stunning sight to take in and great place to take pictures too! You can view from many places - one is when you cross the bring into Marin at the Vista Point and on the other side of the highway is a drive up to the top of the mountain with stops along the way - simply stunning!
