What to do and what to see:

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge attracts millions of visitors annually, and this architectural beauty built in 1937 is the second longest suspension bridge in America. Connecting the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County, this soaring portion of US Route 101 and California State Route 1 spans the bay at almost 9000 feet in length. Pedestrians and bicyclists may utilize the 1.7 miles of sidewalks on the bridge during daylight hours, and excellent photos of the bridge can be achieved from the Fort Point Overlook. The southeast side of the bridge is home to a newly renovated garden area covering almost five acres, with well-maintained annual and perennial flowers, hedges and walking paths. The southeast side is also where the tourist-focused Roundhouse gift center is located, open daily for shopping, and the Bridge Café is nearby for hungry and thirsty visitors. An enduring symbol of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is sure to impress travelers of all kinds.
