Golden Gate Bridge Walk: Walk to the North or South Tower
If you’re short on time or have young family members who can’t go as far as mid-span, a great option is to walk out to one of the Bridge towers. This is much more fun than just taking pictures in the parking lot, and can take as little as 20-30 minutes (though we like to take our time).
Visiting a tower lets you see up-close the gigantic steel rivets that hold the Bridge together. You’ll get the feel for being on the bridge and the massive size of the structure. You’ll feel the vibration when the big trucks and buses go by, see fabulous views and feel the sea breeze.
The video below shows the complete walk to the south tower.
