One of the most iconic landmarks in the world, let alone San Francisco, the magnificent international orange Golden Gate Bridge defines the city. The 4,200-foot suspension bridge was completed in 1937 after four years of construction to a rowdy, week-long celebration. Even today, Golden Gate Bridge's two 746-foot-tall Art Deco towers stand as proud testaments to the ingenuity and grace of the structure’s design. A stroll down the east side offers stunning views of the city and boats in the bay—if you can withstand the wind. A drive across the Golden Gate Bridge leads directly to a breathtaking vantage point in Marin County. Either way, a trip across the Golden Gate Bridge truly brings the stunning San Francisco landscape into focus.
