The beautiful Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks in the United States, connecting the city of San Francisco with the Marin Headlands. Built in 1937, its iconic red-orange colour is known around the world. The total length of the bridge is 8,981 feet, making it one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. From the bridge, visitors can get spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, the City skyline, and the Marin Headlands. There are several stunning lookouts along the nearby coastal roads. The bridge can be crossed on foot or bicycle, and guided bicycle tours are available. The pedestrian walkway is open from 5am to 6pm, while the bike lane is open from 5am to 9pm, so you can plan your visit during daylight hours.
