traveltip: golden gate

As I mentioned the other day, as many times as I have been to San Francisco, for some reason, I had never been over the Golden Gate Bridge before. I don't know why; it was on the other side of town, it was too hard to get to, it would be too busy, I don't know. But when I was in SF over the weekend, I finally trekked out to the bridge with Kai and Heinrich. It wasn't hard to get to. From where we were in Nob Hill, we just got on the muni bus #1 out to Presidio Park (not Presidio Street) and then transferred to bus #28 which ends at the bridge. Easy. Not only do you get the great views of the bridge up close, but walking out on the bridge also gives you great views of the city and the bay. Sure, its a total touristy thing to do, but it really isn't much of a tourist trap - its just the bridge, not a lot of huckster things or fees to drag you down. Definitely one for the 'worth doing' column.

I couldn't agree with you more on this. I love San Francisco and walking across the Golden Gate Bridge is one of my favorite things to do there. I find it quite exhilerating and the views are spectacular. Great pics.
