I genuinely feel that a trip to San Francisco is incomplete without visiting the Golden Gate Bridge. Starting from my childhood, I have seen this majestic bridge in movies, magazines, postcards and a lot many more. So this was my first trip to SF, I was eager to visit and see with my own eyes. I walked across the bridge which took me less than an hour and then walk back. I really enjoyed its beauty, experience its actual length and height with my own foot and truly appreciate such a breathtaking and iconic man-made structure. This photogenic orange bridge can be spotted from most of the places providing a scenic view. Capturing good photographs has some weather challenges. During my visit, the weather was mostly foggy from morning to noon. I would recommend you all to visit whenever the weather is clear to get exceptional shots and enjoy the scene. The afternoon seems to be better than the morning. Come and experience yourself as well as do check out Vistas which provide an awesome view of the bridge. Time of travel: October 2018
I got some really nice pictures and enjoy the view so much. What I didn't like is that when I went the bridge seamed uncared for. There were many spots that could use a little paint. Besides that this is a stop you can't miss if you are visiting the city by the bay!! I was surprised to see the size of the cables!! They are huge!!!
Great place, truly iconic. I will definitely come back here to walk with the love of my life hand in hand. This has been my dream since I saw this bridge first time. It’s the longest of all bridges that I have ever been to. Amazing views for the bridge. Wonderful experience.
The view of the bridge was really cool, and the information before the bridge was really interesting. We did not go on the bridge and it was super windy/cold so we decided not to venture out. Other than that, a great American landmark that is well worth a look.
A human marvel. Walked across the bridge on a beautiful sunny day... Be prepared for chilly weather and wind. Views are amazing from Vista Point and Golden Gate Park. Traffic across can be pretty congested but the views of the Pacific Ocean are worth. Keep your eye on the road.
