Golden Gate Bridge

The U.S. Navy wanted it painted with black and yellow stripes so passing ships would see it. But since opening in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge has had no trouble being seen. The 1.7 mile suspension bridge, the worldโ€™s longest until 1964, connects San Francisco and Marin County at the fabled Golden Gate, where San Francisco Bay meets the Pacific Ocean. Views from this Art Deco beauty are breathtaking, whether you drive, walk or ride a bike. As for the iconic burnt orange hue, Depression-era architect Robert Morrow chose it because it complemented the surroundings and was visible in fog.

    This is a beautiful bridge. The panoramic views of the bridge don't do it justice. You have to get up close and walk out on the bridge to truly see all the detail and beauty it has to offer. From the bridge you have excellent views of the city and Alcatraz. I will go back and I would highly recommend.

    Amazing views of the bridge and the marina. Historic landscape, no questions asked, but could be managed and maintained a lot better. The added barricades are spoiling the view, and I think there should be more cleaning for a site visited by thousands of people every day.

    Get a bike, ride through the bridge. Take pictures. See the skyline and coast of San Francisco. Go to Sausalito. Take the ferry back or (even better) find someone ($20-$30 cab) to take you from Sausalito to Vista point and ride back through the bridge. You might see humpback whales!

    Seen many times in pictures but to experience it first hand being there is just something else. Its long, magnificent, and hell of an engineering done to make this stand out from the rest of the bridges around the world. There are numerous spots for photo ops on all sides of the bridge. you can walk, bike, run, or just stroll to get the perfect photos on this bridge.
