The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world's most beautiful bridges and a marvel of modern engineering. With its tremendous orange towers, sweeping main cables, and amazing span, it is a sensory experience of color, sound, and light. Driving across the bridge is a thrill, but the half-hour walk across lets you feel the bridge's grandeur and absorb panoramic views of Downtown and the San Francisco Bay. Take a guided bus tour across the Golden Gate Bridge, and see incredible sights, from Sausalito to Golden Gate National Park.

When’s a good time to visit Golden Gate Bridge and what are parking options?
If you’re trying to snap the perfect picture, the best shots are usually caught in the early morning and at late sundown, therefore the best times to visit. Because of limited parking spaces, taking public transit to the Bridge is highly recommended; however, the Southeast Side Visitor Parking Lot has a variety of visitor services, scenic views and a café.
What are the best lookout points to photograph the bridge?
The best viewpoints for the Golden Gate Bridge are on the west side from the Marin Headlands with the San Francisco skyline as the backdrop. Baker Beach is on the Northwest side and offers beautiful views and some of the most famous photos of the Bridge have been shot from Battery Spencer.
