Tour the Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is the most iconic symbol of San Francisco and a marvel of modern engineering. Minutes away from our downtown SF hotel, the suspension bridge spans the Golden Gate, the mile-wide strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, and linking San Francisco to the Marin County.
Marvel at the sunset over its golden 746-foot arches or see the fog lift off San Francisco Bay in the morning from its sidewalks. Join a free walking tour or visit the Welcome Center to learn about the bridge's history and construction. Once considered "the bridge that couldn't be built," the Golden Gate Bridge is regarded as a Wonder of the Modern World. Opened in 1937, it's the most beautiful and most photographed bridge of all time.
