"Golden Gate Bridge" Golden Gate Bridge Tip by cheap_tourist

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco: 248 reviews and 406 photos

  Golden Gate Bridge, View From Fort Point

Golden Gate Bridge has come to represent San Francisco like no other structure. It's like the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty in this regard.

Thus, on my first trip there, I made it a point to cross it. I found out that at both ends of the bridge, there is a vantage point where you can park your car, take in the awesome scenery, and take pictures. I also saw that many were crossing the bridge on foot or on a bicycle. Before I get too old, I plan to do what thousands have already done--walk across the bridge.

UPDATE: On Labor Day weekend of 2005, I finally walked across the bridge--from the north vista point to the south--and back.

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