    Most of the time it's covered with fog but at times when there is no fog, you can get a great view of the bridge.

    There is a parking area once you cross the bridge where you can park and have an excellent view.

    You can also walk or use a bicycle on the bridge, make sure you are heavy enough not to be blown away by the wind!!

    2. Fisherman's wharf:
