Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

Sailing in the bay in front of Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge, that icon of San Francisco, extends two miles across the mouth of San Francisco Bay.  It was built in 1937, and provides the major link north of the city, Hwy 101.

The orange/red bridge, often obscured by fog, is the most photographed bridge in the world.  There’s a toll of $5 for those coming into the city from the north (free leaving the city).

At each end of the bridge are scenic overlooks.  On the north side, Vista Point looks back at the city and on the south side, take the “last SF exit” to get a great view!

You can walk or take a bicycle on the bridge for more outstanding views and a great workout!
