About the Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate San Francisco is one of the seven wonders of the world and opened in 1937, after 4 years of construction. A perfect example of losing weight without exercising, the Golden Gate bridge lost around 7,500 tons of weight since 1937, due to redecking in 1986. It is now an iconic American landmark flocked by millions of tourists and daily commuters.
Things to do
Free walking tours are available on Thursdays and Sundays for those who are interested in the history of the bridge. These tours are conducted by the San Francisco city guides and will offer you trivia, facts and history about this great bridge.
When your tummy rumbles
The Bridge Cafe and the Round House Cafe can be relied upon to control your hunger. With options of healthy food along with some of the American classics, you will have plenty of options to choose from. Both the cafe’s are open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
For people seeking exploration and adventure, both ends of the bridge offer exciting trails and vista points that are waiting to be discovered and revisited. All the trails and viewpoints are a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area.
Both interactive and stationary exhibits are situated next to the Welcome Center and offer facts and knowledge encompassing the history & science behind the construction of the bridge.
How to get there
The San Francisco MUNI buses ply regularly and will take you to and back from the Golden Gate Bridge, through route number 28. If you wish to the public transportation system, then you will have to use the Golden Gate Transit system with route numbers 10,20, 80 & 101.
You can take your car to the bridge since parking facilities are available at both ends of the bridge. The parking lots are free of charge on the northern side, however, there is a small fee on the southern side of the gate. We recommend you to take other modes of getting to the bridge since parking facilities are limited on both ends of the bridge.
Other Modes of Transportation
You can also rent your bike and cross the bridge. Bike rental services are available all across the Fisherman’s Wharf area.
