When I think of San Francisco, the Golden Gate bridge automatically comes to mind. Even though there are many other "icons" of San Francisco, this is THE icon of San Francisco. You can't go to San Francisco and not see it.

Probably the most beautiful and iconic land mark in San Francisco. You at least need to drive over it or if you have some time walk or bike it. You see the best views of the city and you realize how big of a marvel it is that humans make something so complex and large.

Yes, it is gorgeous!
I really wish I took a bike to cross it, but I was afraid I wasn't gonna make the first mile, so I took a double decker and regretted it.
It is definitely a lot more fun on a bike, to see the huge orange metal structure getting bigger and being able to cross it on your own pace.
Just remember to bring a jacket cause it gets windy over there.

Take a turn on one of the side streets instead of the viewing stop by the bridge. There's street parking and several small lots by the park (Crissy Fields)! Lots of people come to run, bike, BBQ, play with their dogs...I love how each day you get a different view of the bridge...sometimes sunny and clear, sometimes foggy and concealed!

It can be windy, crowded and foggy, but still, you can't miss it if you visit San Francisco! The views are great when the fog does clear, and the architecture of the bridge itself it as impressive as it is iconic.

It's about a two-hour/six-mile walk from the Ferry Buidling to the Golden Gate Bridge if you follow the water's edge. It's a long walk but you'll pass by/near some classic SF sights: Pier to Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Fort Mason, Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field, and Fort Point. Clearly if you stop at all of these spots, it'll take you a lot longer to get to the Golden Gate but, just walking by these sights makes for a scenic route, plus it's relatively flat too.

When I was six, my mom and I left Hawaii for San Francisco to be stationed in the Presidio (at the time, an active Army base). I remember that I was excited to see the Golden Gate Bridge, a landmark I had thought was made entirely of gold.
Needless to say, I was disappointed.
But once I got over the fact that a solid gold bridge would be as expensive as it would be impractical, I became enamored with this iconic spectacle. Connecting the cliffs from the North Bay to San Francisco, it's a beautiful "welcome" for any boats entering the Bay.
Like walking or biking, I've once hiked from the top of Pacific Heights, across the Marina and Crissy Fields, across the Golden Gate Bridge and down the other side to Sausalito. A beautiful, but tiring walk, I took the $9 ferry ride back to Fisherman's Wharf. Quite a beautiful day!

The icon of San Francisco you really cannot help but see the bridge during you stay in this fair city. That being said, there is no reason to visit it in person..but a good place to view it is from Crissy Fields.

A wonderful piece of engineering, a delightful piece of art, the Golden Gate Bridge defines San Francisco. Although I have not yet used it, I look forward to traversing the bridge on foot using the walking path across the bridge.

It's huge. It's an icon and it's orange, not golden. You seen it in endless movies and going to San Francisco without seeing it, walking it, biking it or at least doing something to it would be a damn shame 'cause it it something to behold.
