Get to know the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is one of the most famous bridges in the world. When it was constructed in 1937 it was the longest and tallest bridge in the world. The bridge is almost 3 kilometers or 900 feet long and it raises 67 meters above sea level. Although the bridge has a sidewalk it is not the most pleasant experience to cross it by foot, especially during windy conditions the bridge can sway up to 8 meters! One of the best ways to explore the bridge is by taking a cruise underneath it, either during day time or another possibility – when the sun sets!

Not far from the bridge, you will find the huge Golden Gate Park full of museums and attractions. Learn more about the park and what you can see and do there in our Golden Gate Park video guide.
