How far away is the vista point from the end of the bridge? Is it close enough to walk to and then catch an Uber to Sausalito?
There are two vista points - one on each side of the bridge. If you are taking Uber, you should go to Vista point on Marin County side near Sausalito. You can easily walk on the bridge from Vista point. There may be some wait time for Uber, but you can plan accordingly. The distance from Vista point to bridge is less than one hundred meters (one block) and distance between this vista point and Sausalito is about three miles.
If you are a little more adventurous, take Uber to Marine Headlands and stop at first parking lot. You get better views of the bridge from a higher elevation, but it is about a mile away from the walkway entrance to the bridge. The views are better. It may take longer to get Uber, but you can plan.
If you have two to three more hours, go to Land's end and check if you can get to Bonita point lighthouse during its operation hours.
Enjoy and hope for a sunny day.
Yes, it is possible but I personally I think it is mostly depend on the weather / fog for the experience. I did the double decker bus tour at Gold Gate Bridge and I think it is more than enough.
Hi!! I did that twice already, one just last year in July with my 78 years old mom!!! I don’t know how far it is, but it was not bad as we stopped a lot to take pictures and enjoy the view!! When we got to the other side we took Uber to Sausalito. Another good option is to take The Big Bus Tour, we did it this past December and we had lots of fun!!! Enjoy your trip!!
There’s a vista point on top of the hills in the Sausalito side of the bridge. It’s about an extra 10 minute cycle to the top, not very far. Not sure about getting an uber from there though.
Depends on which vista point. There is one at the end of the bridge on the Sausalito side that you can walk to form the end of the bridge. But the better one...the one from that scene in the movie The Internship...Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson...is not walking distance.
