One of the many landmarks of the United States that is in my bucket list is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. So many locations where you can spend time either by looking at the magnificent bridge, taking photos of it, biking (there are bike rentals available), walking of running.

I you happen to visit San Francisco in California, you really don't want to miss this place.

“Nice pleasant Ride”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Hired a bike from Fishermans Wharf and rode over the bridge. Easy ride and once on the bridge the photo opportunities are endless. A definite "must do" for anyone visiting San Fran. Medium fitness required

“A must visit on your trip to San Francisco”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

A must visit on your trip to San Francisco, we hired some bicycles & crossed over. Also worth seeing the beautiful Nappa valley.

“Walk the bridge!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Definitely a worthwhile thing to do. I suggest picking a day where the sun is shining and getting to the overflow parking lot on the SF side (open weekends) before 10am. It is only $5 and where do you get parking for $5 in SF? Take your camera if you have not photographed the bridge and start out. When you get to the end, you can take a short hike up to the viewpoint at the Marin Headlands. This is worth the extra time because the view is fabulous. Then you walk back. It took us about 2 hours with stops for pictures. There are bathrooms at both ends of the bridge. You cannot beat the view on a clear day. We routinely visit SF as we used to live there and love the city. I suggest visiting in spring or fall. The weather is the best at that time. If you can walk, walk the bridge.
