I drove over the Golden Gate Bridge when I lived out in San Leandro in 1981. I was a bit nervous (I have problems with heights, especially in a car on a big bridge) but made it across what seemed to be hours later.

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.

You can walk or drive over this world famous red bridge. It's often covered by fog, so you can barely see this amazing construction. My Tip: drive to the top the hills on the other side of the bridge. There you'll have the best view!!

This is THE San Francisco attraction. I grew up only a few miles away from it, so have many memories of the famous bridge: riding on a sailboat on choppy waters underneath it, biking across it on a perfectly sunny day, commuting across it, hiking in the Marin Headlands while gazing out at magnificent views of it, and taking out-of-towners to see it, feeling their sense of awe like I was also seeing it for the first time.

An icon of California, and truly a world gem. It's absolutely gorgeous, especially during sunset or a foggy morning (quite common in the city!). You can bike or walk across or hang out on the cold beach for photos or a picnic.

The FAMOUS and ICONIC Golden Gate Bridge! I only saw it from a distance but it is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the world.

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.
