Visit the Bridge

It’s clear to see why the Bridge was named one of the “Seven Engineering Wonders of the Modern World” by the American Society of Civil Engineers. People come from all over the globe to learn how it was built, to admire its magnificent Art Deco design, and to be inspired.

If you plan to visit, look for tips, directions and parking, transit, and weather information on the Golden Gate Bridge's website. If you can’t visit in person, take the virtual Bridge walk and check out the view from the top of the south tower.
