Yes, it is even more awesome than you imagined. Since it opened in 1937, this 1.7-mile suspension span between San Francisco and Marin counties has become one of the most beloved bridges in the world. A work of art, an engineering marvel, and an American icon, the Bridge is flanked on both ends by the natural beauty of the Golden Gate National Parks. Enjoy an exhilarating, but often chilly, walk across it.

Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion

The Parks Conservancy signed on in 2011 to help with the Bridge’s 75th anniversary celebration and visitor enhancements including a new Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center providing information, exhibits, and interpretive merchandise; and new Bridge overlooks in the Presidio (the Golden Gate and Pacific Overlooks).
