Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA

One of the places we went to see while we were in San Francisco is the famous Golden gate Bridge. It is one of the must-sees if you are visiting in the area. I usually see this famous gate in movies especially on X-Men where it was being lifted to connect to the Alcatraz :-) We drove through there when there was still light. I asked hubby to stay there for a little while because I want to see the bridge light lit up.

This bridge was named as the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was opened in 1937 but right now 8 more suspension bridges surpasses its length. The man behind its construction was Joseph Strauss whose statue was erected near the bridge. This bridge spans the Golden Gate, the opening of San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. It connects San Francisco to the northern tip of San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County, Ca. (source Wikipedia)

Accordingly that this bridge is one of the most photographed bridge in the world as well as the Tower Bridge in London, UK.

I have never visited the Golden Gate Bridge, but I will one of these days. I personally think that it is one of the most impressive man made structures in the world.
