The Basics

Walk, bike, or bus across the Golden Gate Bridge; sail or cruise the waters below it; or fly high above the attraction aboard a seaplane. Alternatively, combine your visit with sightseeing in the city; admission to Alcatraz; a half-day tour in Sonoma and Napa Valley; or hikes in Marin or on Angel Island.

Or, learn about the bridge’s history at the San Francisco terminus Welcome Center and explore other Marin County highlights such as seaside Sausalito, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Muir Woods National Monument, home to Northern California redwood trees.

Golden Gate Bridge Guided Bicycle or E-Bike Tour from San Francisco to Sausalito
Wow! What an experience for this old fat guy from Texas! I was very hesitant about riding an electric bike on a 16 mile round trip over the Golden Gate Bridge! The Blazing Saddles employees were very helpful on getting us lined up with the bikes and safety helmets. John, our tour guide, was excellent. The ride by the shoreline and over the Golden Gate Bridge was a once in a lifetime experience fir all three of us! Worth the time and the expense. 👍👍

Alcatraz Inside and Golden Gate Bridge Bay Boat Cruise
Seeing first hand how rough it would’ve been to be a “resident” of Alcatraz. As well, seeing the Golden Gate Bridge from that vantage point was quite spectacular.

2HR Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Loop GoCar Tour
Seeing everything from a go car rather than being in a bus or personal vehicle was so much fun. I loved that the historical facts were prompted by your gps location. Driving down Lombard Street was an awesome experience. Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge From the base of the bridge was fantastic.

Loved the tour. It was on time with very clean areas. Vaccination is required to be inside, otherwise the outer desks are opened to all. Good experience!

How to Get There

The San Francisco end of the bridge is located in the Presidio and can be reached from all parts of the city by car or public transportation. The bridge forms part of US Route 101 and California State Route 1—take any bridge-bound Golden Gate Transit bus to the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza. By car, take the last San Francisco exit, right before the toll plaza, and park in the southeast parking lot.

When to Get There

The Golden Gate Bridge is striking year-round, but the best time to visit is when there are clear skies and fewer people. Stop by midweek in the early morning or late-afternoon; alternatively, visit on weekend afternoons. Avoid June through August when the infamous San Francisco fog rolls in and blocks the best views both morning and evening.

Where to Find the Best Views of the Golden Gate Bridge

Capture the bridge in its entirety on a coastal walking tour through San Francisco’s Presidio, where you’ll spot beautiful bridge views from vantage points at Crissy Field, Fort Point, and Baker Beach. To snap a photo from the north end of the bridge, choose a tour that crosses the bridge to the Marin Headlands. While Vista Point is the most popular bridge viewing spot in Marin, it can get crowded with cars, so take a short hike toward Battery Point and Slacker Hill for sweeping views of the city.
