San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge

Quintessentially San Francisco- The Golden Gate Bridge remains to be one of the seven wonders of the modern world due to its enigmatic beauty, vast stature and bright orange color. Built in 1937 and spanning 1.7 miles, this single suspension bridge connects the communities of San Francisco and the Marin Headlands. Supported by two cables rooted on shore, it's the 7,000 feet of wires stretched along the top of the towers that make this the most recognizable and famous landmark in San Francisco. Take a drive or bike along this elevated path for breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay Area

  • Is there a museum To learn about the Bridge's history?

    For those that wish to learn all about this modern wonder and to hear all the stories of the Golden Gate Bridge, the first on-site Welcome Center is now open.  The pavilion was built in 2012, just in time for the 75th Anniversary of when the bridge was built. It provides visitors with information, houses exhibits, and offers commemorative merchandise for sale.
  • Where is the best place to park if I want to walk the bridge? What side do I walk on?

    There are outlook points on both north and south sides of the bridge with parking lots. The South lot has many visitor services, including a small café, gift shop, and an array of scenic views.  Parking here is metered. There is an additional lot available on weekends and holidays on the southwest side at a rate of $5 per day. If for some reason you can’t visit the bridge in person, there is a virtual bridge walk available online which include views from the top of the south tower. The North lot has free parking with a four-hour limit.
