Do not miss the Golden Gate Bridge! I could photograph this structure over and over again! It is truly gorgeous! Take a walk over the bridge, drive over it, and take the road off to the side so you can drive to get a birds eye view of this stunning bridge. We did not have trouble parking at the Vista... More

I've driven and also walked over the bridge. You can also cycle if you like. I would recommend it on a nice day. It's an easy walk, with stunning views of San Francisco. Cool to be on such an iconic piece of the cities history.

Great place! Kids loved it since it was their first time. Would have loved to walk across it instead of driving. Highly recommended.

We hired bikes and cycled to the bridge from close to Fisherman's wharf. Then we carried on into Sausalito before getting on the Ferry in Sausalito. Everything was great until we queued for the ferry, which came late, filled up and we couldn't get on. we were also told we didn't need to get tickets, we could pay on the... More

I like the place and it looks even better from the hills. It gives you a full view of the bridge, the city and the bay.

We took an open top bus tour which took us across and next to the bridge. It is very windy so you definitely need to wrap up (and ladies you will have a bad hair day after crossing) we chose not to walk across as it is rather long but could enjoy it perfectly using the bus tour. The sheer... More

It is always breathtaking to see this bridge. It is not only beautiful but well kept. There is plenty of space to walk and take pictures (the views form both on top and from the bottom are incredible)
