San Francisco - Golden Gate Bridge under foggy blanket

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

The"target="_blank">Golden Gate Bridge is the trademark symbol of San Francisco with its soaring arches and cables, dramatic heights, and bay views. Visitors can see this landmark firsthand by walking or biking along designated sidewalk areas. Getting there is easy, too—there are a host of public transportation options, or there are two parking lots for easy access to the bridge. A hint: Choose the northeast parking lot and get four hours of free parking; the southeast lot is all metered spots (25 cents per 15 minutes).
