The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is one of the most iconic bridges in the world.
The Golden Gate Bridge is one of those spots that you can’t afford to miss if you are in San Francisco. At first glance it might just be a bridge, but once you go exploring you will the best views of San Francisco and the bay area waiting for you to click your shutter.
There are many ways to visit the Golden Gate Bridge; you can walk drive across it, walk it, bike it, or go underneath it on a cruise ship, ferry, or boat. I think I have seen this bridge from most angles and I would have to say that the most accessible way to see the bridge is to drive across it from San Francisco to the north vista point. Parking is free here, but it can get quite crowded, so I would suggest going on a weekday if possible. But feel free to get a glimpse of the bridge while taking the ferry to Alcatraz or while you are Alcatraz itself.

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
