Great spot for photos. Many of the excursion busses make a stop here. Only drawback is on a foggy day you might be disappointed.

We hired bikes and cycled over the bridge. Not for those that are too unfit due to the hills . We passed Richard Branson and his family on the way . Some great photos options on the way. We cycled half way as was short of time

This was something that I absolutely had to do to scratch off of my bucket list. The best view of the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo pop is at Crissy Field. There is a parking lot that charges $1.20 for the first hour. We weren’t there an hour, we just wanted to take a picture. If you wait until high traffic times to cross the bridge, you will be at a standstill and risk heavy delays. You can also bike or walk across the bridge. There is a side for bikers and another for pedestrians.

We went over the bridge on open top bus in the morning and it was misty and cold. However we would thoroughly recommend that you cycle over the bridge as you can take your time and there are many opportunities for photos. You also get some great views and pictures of the city. A very memorable experience to be able to cross over an iconic bridge.

We did this on a sunny day, I can imagine if it's dull it won't have the same impact. We caught a bus and went over the bridge, took some pics and came back again. There is a free tourist bus that takes you and you just give him a tip. It's a run down tourist bus but the bloke is so funny and gives a great tour.
Worth seeing.
