Acclaimed as one of the world’s most beautiful bridges, there are many different elements to the Golden Gate Bridge that make it unique. With its tremendous towers, sweeping cables, and great span, the Bridge is a sensory beauty and engineering wonder featuring color, sound, and light.
The Golden Gate Bridge opened to pedestrians on May 27, 1937, and to traffic the following day, May 28, 1937. At that time, it was the longest suspension bridge ever built. It is truly an engineering marvel, a structure of magnificence, grace, and beauty. A true American Icon with a rich history.
