Best view point of Golden Gate Bridge @ San Francisco, USA

Golden Gate Bridge is the internationally most recognized symbols of San Francisco. It is probably the most beautiful and most photographed bridge in the world. Completed in 1937, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. It was a great feat to be able to build the bridge in 1937 which can stand the strong sea current from Pacific Oceans for more than 80 years now. Golden Gate Bridge, heralded as one of the top ten construction achievements of the 20th Century. Any visitor to San Francisco should walk across the bridge, just be sure to pack a sweater as it can get cold and windy here. There were many reading material at Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion which you can read before walking on the bridge. I recommend getting some context and reading about the history of the bridge to truly appreciate it. Below are some of the best location to view the Golden Gate Bridge and how to get there.
