  • I love the Golden Gate Bridge. The welcome centre is located directly on the end of the bridge. There is car parking available here and it is only a short walk until you are on the bridge itself. It also provides a fantastic place to take photos. The welcome centre is full of helpful staff and awesome mementos to remind you of your visit to this landmark. Highly recommended.
  • This place is so amazing especially for photo opportunities as well as just enjoying the beautiful weather. The trick is to not park at the actual welcome center but go down the hill a little bit and then take the trail down to the pier. Or drive all the way down the hill to get to the pier overall great place to go for just hanging out and the gift shop isn't enormous but decently sized and has a variety of relics.
