    Never fail to amaze me. Every time seems to be different. Sometimes it is shrouded in fog. Sometimes the bridge contrasts with the infinite blue above and below. Always brings me back to the romantic thought when i first read about it.

    It's an iconic bridge starring in hundreds of movies and as soon as you see it you realise exactly where you are. And in real-life it does feel much bigger. It's a wonderful experience to see the magnificent colour that seems to glow in the sun and stand boldy in the cloud. It's also quite an experience crossing the bridge too.

    The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County. You can't come to San Francisco without walking or biking across the bridge.

    I don't know a lot about bridges, but this one is definitely the cats pajamas. Talk about the most beautiful, best located and number one photogenic bridge in the WORLD. Congrats San Francisco on your bridge!

    Smoke on the water. Across the bridge on the north side the smoke crawled over the hill tops. Better to look upon then from on bridge.

    It's one of those famous landmarks that you wanna day you've seen and been on. You don't need a car to cross the bridge, especially of you don't want to pay the toll. There are wide sidewalks on either side of the car lanes for pedestrians, bikers, and the athletic types that are running across the long stretch of bridge. It can get fairly windy and cold so bring a jacket

    One of my favourite memories of San Francisco - definitely worth hiring a bike for a day and biking over.

    One of, if not the, most iconic bridge in the world. The bright orange of the Golden Gate Bridge is majestic against the water and mountains in the background. We rented bikes at Fisherman's Wharf and rode along the beach and over the bridge. Best $80 I spent in San Fran. The views of the bay are amazing as you cross over the bridge. A must for anyone visiting San Fran.

    This bridge is truly epic. The first time I went over it was on a bike in summertime when the sun was shining. Looking out to the Pacific (in fact probably the first time I saw the Pacific!), with the wind blowing round is definitely one of my favourite travel memories.

    Years later, I still enjoy going over it, even when it's grey and visibility is down to a few metres.

    The icon and landmark of San Francisco; The Golden Gate Bridge. Home to the world champion San Francisco Giants and soon to be Super Bowl Champion San Francisco 49ers!

    We reached the famous bridge on a surprisingly rainy day for San Francisco but the beauty of the bridge is unfaltering in the mist. Coming face to face for the first time with the world's 'most photographed bridge', a certain sense of familiarity mixed with a sense of wonder. The pathway to cross the bridge on either side are filled with walkers and bikers. From the top of the bridge, fisherman's wharf, alcatraz island are within line of sight. What a view!

    There are several ways to enjoy the Golden Gate bridge. Ride underneath it with a boat, view it from the southern end of the bridge, view it from the northern end of the bridge, walk/bike along the bridge. Whatever you do, bring a jacket. It has always been cold when I've gone.

    Whether you're young or old, you appreciate the wondrous beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge, the quintessential symbol of San Francisco. The golden hue of this suspension bridge connecting San Francisco to Marin County continues to be its drawing point.

    The Golden Gate Bridge does not disappoint. Every time I see it come into view as I drive through the tunnel (coming from Marin) I feel lucky to live so close to one of the most beautiful bridges in the world.

    Walking across the bridge is also fun. Here are some tips if you plan to do so:
    1. Wear layers. The bay can go from brisk to boiling in no time at all.
    2. Be prepared for crowds. Lots of people think its a good idea to walk across the bridge.
    3. Secure all belongings, including hats. The wind can whip a hat right off your head before you even realizing what's happening. Unless you want to give new toys to the seals swimming below, tuck loose belongings securely away.

    Me and a friend of mine walked from on side to the other and back again. It was so worth it! You can get some really good pictures from the parking lot next to Horseshoe Bay.

    Can't go to SFO without the visit to the bridge :-) It's a nice walk or drive (and you can park on the other side of the bay and have a view of SFO and the bridge. While on the other side take the first exit and go up the mountain, the view from there is even better.

    Come here on a clear day. I've been on days where it's sunny, cloudy, rainy, drizzly. The traffic can be bad and its an absolute tourist haven but the view is worth it. Happy 75th to the bridge!

    Very impressive. My fondest memory of the Golden Gate Bridge is of May 1960 when we came back to the USA from Japan. We flew over the Bridge at sunrise and it was so beautiful.

    This bridge is truly magnificent. Never know if it will be in its full grandeur or just peeking out of the fog, either way it is spectacular to see.

Description

In the 1800s, a ferry service connected the tip of San Francisco to Marin County. After decades of debate about the feasibility of a bridge here, the 1.7-mile Golden Gate Bridge opened on May 27, 1937. The name of the bridge doesn't come from its color, but because the Golden Gate Strait is the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The bridge is actually painted 'international orange.' Most visitors start at the San Francisco side visitors center, but the Marin County views of the city are worth a trip across, either by foot or bicycle. Just remember Mark Twain's saying: the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. Dress in layers and be prepared to steel yourself against the wind and fog
