Golden Gate Bridge
Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most iconic attractions of San Francisco and a must-see for first timer visiting . Consequently, it is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of the United States. The American Society of Civil Engineers declared it as one of the Wonders of the Modern World. The Frommer’s travel guide describes the Golden Gate Bridge as “possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world.” The color of the bridge is officially an orange vermilion called international orange. Many people enjoy the bridge by driving across, walking, or biking. The main walkway is on the eastern side and open for use by both pedestrians and bicycles in the morning to mid-afternoon during weekdays (5 am to 3:30 pm). Pedestrians only may use it for the remaining daylight hours (until 6 pm, or 9 pm during DST).
