Can't believe I did it, but what an experience! Start at the gift shop and then walk all the way across. Return... DRESS WARMLY. It was cold and windy in July! Cars and busses detract from the experience but what fun and views. Iconic.

Such a beautiful thing to see from a distance and even more amazing to drive over. Do some research on how you pay to cross because we didnt stop at a booth but there was a fee. Pretty sure our rental car may be being billed

Very beautiful views and an amazing place to take pictures. You can walk across the bridge, or there are several bus tours as well.

It is so beautiful even if the traffic is slow. I know for most it's transportation but for a visitor it is magnificent driving over as well as approaching.

This is a MUST see in San Fran. I suggest that you visit the park on the city side of the bridge and walk or cycle across to the vista point on the other side. if you have the energy continue on to Sausalito and catch the ferry back to Fisherman's wharf.
