San Francisco Bay was the source of the city’s livelihood for a very long time, and it remains the key to the city to this day.
The Golden Gate Bridge, a San Francisco icon, is 1.7 miles long and frames the Bay. The Bridge is an architectural marvel, and is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. The two towers are purposely out of alignment in order to compensate for the curvature of the earth. It’s orange shape is beautiful to behold, whether it is on a clear day, or peaking above the rolling fog of the bay. Visitors should drive across it, take photographs of it, and enjoy this national landmark.
