Across America: Golden Gate Bridge

As one of the most photographed and recognizable bridges in the world, the Golden Gate Bridge and its surrounding beauty make for an iconic experience.

Suspended over the Golden Gate strait, which connects the Pacific Ocean to the San Francisco Bay, there are many views and vistas to take in.

Walk and bike across the bridge or discover the many viewpoints where you can see the bridge from afar. The Golden Gate Bridge, which took four years to construct in the 1930s, stands 746 feet high and is about 1.7 miles long.
