Tips for Families

The pathway can get a bit crowded and people aren't always courteous of those slower than they are, so if traveling with young children I'd recommend bringing a stroller to keep them from being trampled by joggers or bikers. It can also be a bit windy, so bring a sweater!

I would give it 4.5 if I could. Only because while it's pretty I dislike all the construction going on around it. Not to mention how freakin expensive it is now! Still remember back in the day when it was $2 and now I think it's $6. I know everyone hates on the toll. :p The only time I come here now is when friends are in town visiting and they want to see it. Agree the scenery is still nice and an awesome view. Taken so many pictures of the bridge (day and night) from different angles.   Usually I get lucky and there is no fog, but windy and foggy days it has it's beauty as well. Of course, it's a definitely a must see if you're visiting California, or NorCal specifically. Been here so often since I was a k...

The bridge is becoming more of a tourist trap every year. Tolls are increasing and traffic is too, because they have less and less people working the booths with the push of Fast Tra...

The best bridge in America! Its been awhile since I've walked on the bridge. Since I was a lil toddler in the 80s. I have photos to prove it. lol I went here yesterday afternoon in a attempt to watch the blue angels show. It was a disaster. The planes occasionally flew by, but they looked like flys from across the bridge. A lot of tourist people in front of me. Posing with the peace sign and all(Yes, i did see some old ladys from Hong Kong stop other Non Asian people to take a photo with them).It was hilarious the reaction that those people had when asked at first. haha. The shaking while on the bridge is what got me all off centered. I am terrified of heights, so the shaking definitely got me a lil more spo...

Yes, it's cold and windy, but didn't we all know that already??? I've lived in the bay area most of my life and traveled extensively and the GG bridge can still take my breath away. Living here we sometimes forget how truly beautiful and magnificent this bridge is...

On our class field trip, I let the kids get out and run/walk across the bridge. Visibility was down due to fog, but ...

For a short time when I was a child I wondered if I was color blind or something, because everyone kept talking about how "the bridge" was golden and red and stuff but all I saw was gray. Wrong bridge. So when I realized I had been on the Bay Bridge and not the Golden Gate one, I asked what the GG was all about: "Its the one that nobody uses, but they put it on the postcards and shit because its pretty. And it goes to Marin." "What's Marin?" "Shit, uhdunno...::shoulder shrugs:: Rich people live there in the mountains." I've seen the Golden Gate Bridge a lot in the last couple of years, more than I ever had in the whole rest of my life, and I have certainly come to love, appreciate and be in awe of its beauty...

One of the finest perks of living on the 510 "nickel'n dime" side of SF Bay is that you can see the Golden Gate bridge from your living room window. Straight ahead, dead on. No ifs-ands-or-buts about it. At this very moment, the bridge lights are just barely visible through the evening sky. Two moments ago, I checked the view to see if any ships were passing through in the evening twilght. There weren't any. Ships that is. Nosedivers (they say) usually take the port side  for exit into the water below. That would be the side facing us. The theory is that they are looking toward the hills. Hoping for that last human contact. At dusk, I often say a brief matins for them, the poor departed souls. Try to give th...
