Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world’s iconic structures. The view of the San Francisco skyline and San Francisco Bay from its walkway is unrivaled. No visit to the City is complete without making a pilgrimage. The bridge is 1.7 miles long and connects San Francisco with Marin County. The walkway floats 220 feet above San Francisco Bay and the towers rise to 746 feet above the water. It was the largest suspension bridge in the world when it opened to great fanfare in 1937 and it remains the most beautiful and by far the most photographed. That is why you should go visit it.
