Good walk, beautiful view, its a really cold city so be ready for sun and freezing windy. Put some comfy shoes in your luggage and enjoy it. Be careful about the bad mood from the people that work there, the natives ones are nice but not the others. Asking for information is basically an insult. Sad but true

The previous years we crossed the bridge by car, bike and foot. Also we sailed under the bridge, but the most impressive view I had was from the plane. Besides the view there is also the feeling and from that perspective I like the look and feel when you walk on the bridge. It's also a beautiful part of a... More

Golden Gate bridge is definitely impressive and worth seeing. Not sure if it makes sense to walk through, simply stop just at the beginnining to have nice pictures of it. Alternatively have a tour by taking a bus to Sausalito.

What can I say that hasn't been said already. It's an amazing sight. Luckily for me, it was a sunny clear day. It also look pretty awesome at night. Love the colour! Even though it was originally to stop corrosion while being delivered.

While crossing the bridge yesterday, I recognized once again that this is not only an incredible feat of engineering, but a work of art as well. From its placement to the art deco touches on the arches, to the international orange color, to the commemorative plaques on the towers, please take a couple of minutes to appreciate what you're seeing....

Iconic, absolutely not to miss. You can see it on Tv, movies but the greatness of this bridge is even more impressive when seen in place. For the jogging lovers is one of the most interesting routes to run on.

My husband and I walked from one end of the bridge and back. It was just a fun experience and exciting accomplishment! We were there in February so a jacket is highly recommended. The view of the city is amazing. They had the bridge set so bicycle riders where on one side and pedestrians on the other which made it... More
