And for good reason. The views are fabulous (especially at sundown) of the SF skyline.
The pullouts at both ends of the bridge and the area by Fort Point are worth the stop for the shutterbug in you. The bridge is free going north (towards Sausalito) and $5.00 coming south. If you have three or more people in the car the bridge troll will let you pass for free.

A must do for everyone who visits San Francisco. On 4/7/2002, we chose to venture across the Golden Gate Bridge after lunch at Horizons in Sausalito. It was much longer than the 3/4 mile walk we were told it would take to reach the bridge but this adventure was well worth it. The view of San Francisco was truly breathtaking! It is a walk and view Tim and I will never forget!

The bridge might be a wonder to behold, but in a practical sense, it is not practical. It serves an essential link from the City to Marin County, but at a expensive price. If a tourist wants to save money, he will walk across instead of driving. However, there is a real possibility that the weather would be too cold, wet, and/or windy to enjoy the walk across the span.
