“San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge serves as the iconic symbol of the "City by the Bay." It is one of the most visited attractions and visitors love photographing it, walking across it, and learning about Golden Gate Bridge history. It's one of the world's most beautiful spans. The real "Golden Gate" is the strait that the bridge spans. It was first named "Chrysopylae," meaning "golden gate," by Captain John C. Fremont in 1846. Golden Gate Bridge Vista Points These are the two spots most Golden Gate Bridge visitors like to go the most: South (San Francisco Side) Vista Point: Parking spaces are almost always full, spaces are metered and if you let the meter expire, you'll pay a fine that could cost as much as a meal in a very nice restaurant. You'll find restrooms, a gift shop, cafe, and an exhibit showing the cross-section of a bridge cable. If you find this parking lot full or if you want to spend more time than the meters will allow, try these options: Drive away from the metered lot and turn left out onto Lincoln. You will find a gravel lot a short distance away on your left. If you are approaching from the Presidio on Lincoln, the lot is just across from the two-story houses that were once the Presidio officer's quarters. Weekends and holidays ONLY, you'll find more paid parking in a nearby satellite lot on the southwest side of the bridge. From there, walk toward the bridge and through the underpass to get to the vista point. North (Marin Side) Vista Point: Parking is free for up to four hours and there are restrooms. This lot is accessible only from northbound US 101 and if you drive across the bridge and plan to go back into San Francisco afterward, you'll pay a toll. The toll booths are all-electronic, so it isn't quite so easy as pulling out some cash. Find out how to pay in the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Guide, which is written with an out-of-town visitor in mind. ”

“I love Lagunitas! So much so, I don't mind making the extra trek to Petaluma to visit every so often. Besides their delicious beer, they have a fun outdoor patio where you can enjoy live music (but be sure to check their calendar) as well as a very entertaining and informative tour, where they provide plenty of beer samples!”

“Amazing locals' place on the marina for lunch or early dinner (they close around 8:30 pm). It's a casual bare-bones waterside shack with outdoor and indoor seating, serving up fresh local seafood. They don't take reservations and it's usually very crowded. 350 Harbor Ave, Sausalito. ”
