Only our bus driver knew we were on the bridge until...mid-way over the second arch appeared and it was breathtaking. The views of the water and islands were... More

An easy walk across the bridge though one does need to be aware of the bicycles. Also the car traffic is quite loud at times.

We took a bike tour across the Golden Gate Bridge starting at Fisherman's Wharf. We enjoyed learning about the interesting history of the Golden Gate bridge, and we took several stunning views of the city and the bay. We enjoyed the tour as a couple, but there were many families with children participating too.

The Golden Gate Bridge is an extraordinary engineering structure across the San Francisco Bay. It's absolutely stunning to look at either from water on a cruise/ferry or from land especially from the Golden Gate Bridge Park. The bright orange coloured bridge is really attractive and impressive. Wanted to walk across the bridge to enjoy the city view of San Francisco... More

Ok. I live here so I'm not going to give it 5 stars. I've been here a bunch with visitors and it is a must see if in the area. Best view point is on the Marin county side of the bridge off of Conzelman Rd. As always, bring layers when visiting any part of San Fran bay as you... More

This is a very pleasant walk , but you should be prepared for some cool and windy weather.The sidewalks are quite wide and unlike many other bridges this one does not shake or sway under the traffic; it is rock solid.Saw pedestrians of all ages from toddlers with their families up to senior citizens.There are some slopes but nothing at...

Definitely worth seeing this iconic bridge. Walk, cycle or even drive across it to the viewing platform on the Intyre side for great views of the bridge, Alcatraz and the city.

This bridge is well worth a visit. One of the most beautiful bridges i have ever seen. We were there on a sunny day and joined the Donald Trump protesters which was walking over the bridge dressed in purple. It was a nice walk over the bridge with all this friendly people.

The design of this structure is amazing to considering the engineering issues that the bridge had to overcome. The views of the bay are amazing. We crossed the bridge numerous times going to different attractions and other venues.

Crossing this bridge is just awe inspiring. Only caveat is don't forget to pay when you get home. Fines are large if you go past 5 days.
