Brücke
“San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge serves as the iconic symbol of the "City by the Bay." It is one of the most visited attractions and visitors love photographing it, walking across it, and learning about Golden Gate Bridge history. It's one of the world's most beautiful spans. The real "Golden Gate" is the strait that the bridge spans. It was first named "Chrysopylae," meaning "golden gate," by Captain John C. Fremont in 1846. Golden Gate Bridge Vista Points These are the two spots most Golden Gate Bridge visitors like to go the most: South (San Francisco Side) Vista Point: Parking spaces are almost always full, spaces are metered and if you let the meter expire, you'll pay a fine that could cost as much as a meal in a very nice restaurant. You'll find restrooms, a gift shop, cafe, and an exhibit showing the cross-section of a bridge cable. If you find this parking lot full or if you want to spend more time than the meters will allow, try these options: Drive away from the metered lot and turn left out onto Lincoln. You will find a gravel lot a short distance away on your left. If you are approaching from the Presidio on Lincoln, the lot is just across from the two-story houses that were once the Presidio officer's quarters. Weekends and holidays ONLY, you'll find more paid parking in a nearby satellite lot on the southwest side of the bridge. From there, walk toward the bridge and through the underpass to get to the vista point. North (Marin Side) Vista Point: Parking is free for up to four hours and there are restrooms. This lot is accessible only from northbound US 101 and if you drive across the bridge and plan to go back into San Francisco afterward, you'll pay a toll. The toll booths are all-electronic, so it isn't quite so easy as pulling out some cash. Find out how to pay in the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Guide, which is written with an out-of-town visitor in mind. ”

“Go to Sutro Baths first and then just take the path to the right into the trees and that will take you to Land’s End. I suggest this first because it is just such a beautiful way to take in the west coast of San Francisco. Standing above Sutro Baths, ruins of ancient baths, to the left is the expanse of Ocean Beach and to the right is a grove of trees that hide a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. To walk all the way to the stone labyrinth, I think it’s something like 1.5ish miles round trip and it’s also a great path for jogging.”

“Obviously, no trip to the Bay Area is complete without a visit to The Golden Gate Bridge. I suggest pulling off at the last exit before crossing and driving up the Headlands for an amazing view and cruise along the shoreline. ”

“The Camera Obscura is a large camera obscura, which is an optical device that preceded the camera and photography. It was originally built in 1946 as part of the Playland Amusement Park. The outside structure was redone in 1957 to resemble a camera, but the interior stayed the same. It's an interesting work of art and a must see for all photography or history buffs. It's the oldest camera obscura in the US and the only one that exists in a free-standing building. Address: 1096 Point Lobos Avenue right behind the Cliff House Hours: 11am to 5pm daily Cost: $3”
