Golden Gate Bridge is probably the most recognized San Francisco landmark. Since I moved here many of my friends come to visit and because of this I have the chance to go to Golden Gate Bridge maybe 10 times a year. But I never get tired of walking on the bridge which is about 2 miles long. On a sunny day you are rewarded with great views of Alcatraz, San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean. But foggy days can be interesting too. I usually stop at one of the vista points at the two ends and walk all the way to the center where you can touch the main cable and be impressed by the magnificent engineering that went into building the bridge. If you stop at the vista point before the tolls you can find a section of the main cable. After crossing the bridge make a U-turn at Alexander exit and continue up the hill for beautiful views of the bridge and San Francisco.

Address: Northwestern Tip of San Francisco Peninsula
Directions: The bridge is Highway 101's link from San Francisco to the counties North.
