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
Al igual que los puentes de Nueva York lo crucé caminando en un dia soleado. Recomiendo no ir temprano en la mañana porque suele haber bruma y entorpece las vistas. El puente en si es una obra genial ... more »Like the bridges of new York I walked across it on a sunny day. I recommend not to go early in the morning because there is usually haze and hinders the views. The bridge itself is a great engineering work but it has an Art Deco touch in the main pathinges that gives you one more point.
A ponte Golden Gate é sempre uma atração imperdível. Mas prepare- se para o vento gelado que sobra sempre more »The Golden Gate Bridge is always an unmissable attraction. But get ready for the icy wind that's always left
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
