Golden Gate Bridge In San Francisco,California

Walk or Bike Across San Francisco's Iconic Golden Gate Bridge

Nothing says San Francisco quite like the landmark Golden Gate Bridge, 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 the bridge or you can stay put and just admire the amazing views of the Bay, Alcatraz Island, and Downtown San Francisco. 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.
