Golden Gate Bridge at Fort Point

For use with The Sojourner of San Francisco: LTR/01: You Don’t Have to Be a Stranger, Says the Awkward Turtle

Golden Gate Bridge is 1.7 miles long. Each tower is 746 feet above water. Construction started on January 5, 1933, and the Art Deco icon of San Francisco opened on May 27, 1937. It costed $23.8 million (about $1.64 billion in today’s dollar). When it opened it was the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world. It was considered an impossible task due the gusty wind of Golden Gate Strait.

The Summer fog usually won’t scatter until afternoon, and it will descend to the Fort ground around dusk, obscuring the view of the beautiful red truss arch just above it. The famous saying, “the coldest Winter is Summer in San Francisco” is definitely true, so bring layered clothing if you’re visiting.
