There are so many sights and sounds to experience. One of the first landmarks you will most undoubtedly see is the Golden Gate Bridge. It is famous worldwide as one of the most beautiful and architecturally well constructed bridges in the world.
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening from San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. It connects the city of San Francisco and the Marin County headlands. The length of the entire bridge including the approach is 1.7 miles or 2.7 km. The distance between the towers is approximately 4,200 feet or 1,280 metres. When it was completed in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge was the largest suspension bridge in the world. However it is currently the second longest suspension bridge in the United States. The unique color of the bridge is International orange, and it is revered for its example of one of the most difficult structural design challenges and also for its aesthetic appeal. It truly is a beautiful and overwhelming sight, especially at night when it lights up the San Francisco skyline.
