Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Overview

One of San Francisco's most iconic landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the 'seven wonders of the modern world'.

The bridge, which was opened in 1937, was chosen by the American Civil Society of Engineers as one of the seven wonders of the modern world, because of the fact that it was an incredible engineering feat. The suspension bridge is held by a cable, stretching across two towers providing the structural support. It's unique orange colour makes it pleasing to the eye and the towers can sometimes be seen rising through the clouds on foggy mornings. It is an absolute must for any visitor to walk or pedal across the Golden Gate Bridge. The walkways on either side of the road are accessible to pedestrians and bicyclists. As you go along, you'll be able to absorb some fantastic views of the bay, with the wind blowing through your hair. It is widely believed to be San Francisco's most photogenic spot, so get your cameras out and get clicking!
