riding across the Golden Gate Bridge is the BEST!!!. riding across the Golden Gate Bridge is the BEST!!! Going north across the bridge is slightly hard yet 100% worth it when going back (south) with the wind doing the work!
The most photographed bridge in the world!.
And for good reason. The views are fabulous (especially at sundown) of the SF skyline.
The pullouts at both ends of the bridge and the area by Fort Point are worth the stop for the shutterbug in you. The bridge is free going north (towards Sausalito) and $5.00 coming south. If you have three or more people in the car the bridge troll will let you pass for free.
The beautiful red-orange bridge has become the defining symbol of the Bay Area..
This soaring, stunning bridge is easy to access by car, tour bus, bike or by foot. There's no bad time to cross the bridge--unless you're a commuter in rush-hour traffic. The views--dot-sized boats far below you, the dramatic cityscape to the south and towering hills to the north--are spectacular by day or night. And if it feels like the bridge is moving, it is: Golden Gate was built to sway 27 feet from side to side as protection against powerful winds.
Unforgettable!!!. A must do for everyone who visits San Francisco. On 4/7/2002, we chose to venture across the Golden Gate Bridge after lunch at Horizons in Sausalito. It was much longer than the 3/4 mile walk we were told it would take to reach the bridge but this adventure was well worth it. The view of San Francisco was truly breathtaking! It is a walk and view Tim and I will never forget!
Breathtaking. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge is breathtaking no matter where you see it from and every time you see it. It's architechtural genious.
the most beautiful site. I first saw the Golden Gate Bridge when I was about 6 or 7 and my aunt lived in San Francisco. We used to walk up to her roof and watch the sun over the Golden Gate Bridge. It was and still is my favorite place to be...it's so calming.
Free?. What free? It costs $5.00 each way to cross. This is a great site to see, but doesn't belong in a free catagory.
Amazing. The bridge is so huge. Very well maintained. Amazing engineering.
Everyone should go at least once.
there's nothing better than cruising the bridge with the california sun and breeze...
if you're in the SF area, you MUST drive through!
unique, but expensive. The bridge might be a wonder to behold, but in a practical sense, it is not practical. It serves an essential link from the City to Marin County, but at a expensive price. If a tourist wants to save money, he will walk across instead of driving. However, there is a real possibility that the weather would be too cold, wet, and/or windy to enjoy the walk across the span.
