Beautiful, but avoid driving this if possible. Crowded and slow and no fun - find a way to take BART or another option

We drove over this bridge on arrival in SF and I thought it was excellent! To me both this and GG bridge are the same, both huge, awesome bridges.

Great views and a cool place to jog or drive! They charge when you come back into San Francisco, but not on the way out.

You only pay tolls going into SF. Bay bridge is $6-ish. Golden Gate is $7.25 unless you have a FasTrak. Might be worth getting one if you are renting a car. It's much easier. The cash lanes on the Bay Bridge depending on the... More
