Walk Across the Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km), three-mile-long (4.8 km) channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the American city of San Francisco, California – the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula – to Marin County, carrying both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait.
The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized tourist attractions in the world. If you have planned to walk across the bridge here are some advices that would surely be useful for you!
Pedestrians have access to the East Sidewalk, which can be reached from the parking lot on the Marin side and from either the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center parking lot or from the walking trail.
When is the best time to go to the Golden Gate Bridge?
The bridge is a beautiful entryway to the San Francisco Bay every day of the year! However, there are times when the bridge can be socked in with fog, making it a bit harder (or impossible!) to see these majestic views. Although there is no way to predict whether it will be foggy on the day of your arrival, we have a couple of good tips for you:
Best months to visit: September and October (beautiful, often warm weather)
More troublesome months to visit: July and August (usually cold, foggy, and windy!)
