What is the best time to visit the Golden Gate Bridge?
Every day, the bridge offers a stunning entrance to San Francisco Bay.
Sometimes, however, the bridge may be covered in fog. This can make it difficult (or even impossible) to see. These magnificent views are possible to be seen.
We have some good tips, even though it is impossible to predict how foggy it will be on your arrival.
The best months to visit are September and October for beautiful, often warm weather.
The most troublesome months to visit are July and August. They can be cold, foggy, and windy!
Things to do near the Golden Gate Bridge
Visit Fort Point Historic Site
Fort Point, a brick fort built during civil war times, is a National Historic Site. It is located right below the southern entrance to the bay. The exterior can be walked around at any time. The interior is also open from Friday to Sunday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Follow the Trail from Batteries to Bluffs
The beautiful Baker Beach is the starting point for the 1-mile Batteries To Bluffs trail. The trail leads up to the Blufftops, past abandoned gun batteries, and finally ends at the Bridge’s south end. You can also take a side trip to Marshalls Beach from the trail. Also, spend some time exploring the abandoned Battery West, Battery Godfrey, and Battery Boutelle military gun positions.
Learn More about the Presidio
The Presidio has many cool attractions that you could easily spend an entire day exploring. You can visit the Disney Family Museum and take a photo at the Goldsworthy Lines at Lover’s Lane. Or, my favorite, visit the Yoda statue at Lucas Arts.
Tips to get to the Bridge
If you’re driving and want to visit the Golden Gate Bridge, take Highway 1 north towards the bridge. Look for signs that read “Welcome Center” or “last exit for bridge”. There isn’t much information about the exit so be cautious. The Visitor Center can be reached from Crissy field by taking Lincoln Boulevard or Highway 101 through Marina.
Have fun, and enjoy your trip to the Golden Gate Bridge.
