A top roadside attraction, this bridge is listed as one of the “Engineering Seven Wonders of the Modern World” and is a National Historic Landmark. Completed in May 1937 after 4 1/3 years of construction, over 2.4 million vehicles have crossed the one-mile-long bridge. It is named after the Golden Gate Strait, the entrance to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. At one time it was the world’s longest suspension span bridge and is one of the world’s most beautiful ridges. The bridge’s color is right red-orange and not golden. My family did not drive over the bridge but bicycled north across the bridge.
