Walk or Bike the Golden Gate Bridge

Nothing says San Francisco quite like this landmark attraction, which also happens to be one of the world's longest suspension bridges. Completed in 1937, the 4,200-foot-long, bright orange Golden Gate Bridge looks beautiful whether it's sunny, foggy or rainy. You'll be able to walk or ride your bike across it. Or, if you prefer, feel free to just admire the amazing views of the Bay, Alcatraz Island, and Downtown SF. What's more, you can gain an appreciation for the engineering and science that went into the bridge's construction by examining the interactive exhibits found outside Visitor Plaza.

  • Are there are restrictions regarding the Bridge's sidewalks?

    Yes, there are a few. Only bicyclists and pedestrians are permitted to be on the sidewalks of the Golden Gate Bridge. No one is allowed to transport themselves on roller blades, roller skates or a skateboard. If you have an electric bike or scooter, you can either push it or ride it on the sidewalks but the power must be off. And the only types of animals that are permissible are service dogs, guide dogs or signal dogs.
  • What will I see in the Visitor Plaza?

    For starters, there's the Welcome Center. You'll receive answers to any questions you might have along with an informative overview. There are also several educational exhibits and commemorative merchandise. What's more, you'll be able to satisfy your hunger at the Round House Café, which serves such American fare as hot dogs and clam chowder, and the Bridge Café where you can enjoy a variety of drinks and snacks.
