Fun things to do in The Paris of the West

The famous Golden Gate Bridge is San Francisco’s most historic visiting spot, a winner of the Travelers’ Choice 2014 Attractions award! The bridge is surpassed in age and dimensions by many other structures on the planet, but will forever remain a landmark American cultural icon.

Tourists can enjoy free parking on the bridge’s east and west GGNRA lots, and are encouraged to bring their digital cameras for some awesome scenery. The views afforded of the bay are memorable at all hours, but nothing looks better on a travel card than a sunrise/sunset from Golden Gate. Nature lovers will be drawn to the Marin Headlands. Featuring the old Point Bonita Lighthouse and a scenic hiking trail, your day trip has just been planned!
