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.

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.

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 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.

One of the greatest part of San Francisco is the many places to discover. There is so much history to rediscover, nooks to find, and interesting people to watch. Every time I visit SF I have to get a shot of the infamous Golden Gate Bridge! There are so many different great shots you can capture, all it takes is a little adventure and no fear of getting lost!Recommended for:History Buffs

Walk over the bridge to savor the views of the bay and of the iconic bridge itself. You can see so much from there--the San Francisco waterfront, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and look down and you might see sea kayakers or dolphin! I love watching the huge ships come and go as well. Dress in layers because it can be cold up there, and it's loud too because of the cars.
