A pretty bridge and easy to drive across. Many riders and NO walkers. Watch it from Pier 1 through 39

We liked seeing this famous land mark and listening to what the tour guide told us. How is was built and what is was made out of. Don't miss it.

I like the "modern" look to this bridge......although, I still remember Dustin Hoffman driving ( the wrong way) on it in the movie, "The Graduate".

You only pay tolls going into SF. Bay bridge is $6-ish. Golden Gate is $7.25 unless you have a FasTrak. Might be worth getting one if you are renting a car. It's much easier. The cash lanes on the Bay Bridge depending on the... More
