The Golden Gate Bridge In San Francisco - A Modern Wonder

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 Marin County. From Fort Point, watch the sun set 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 considered a Wonder of the Modern World. Opened in 1937, it's the most beautiful and most photographed bridge of all time.
