The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. As part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, the structure links the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County. The Golden Gate Bridge was the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937, and has become one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and of the United States. Despite its span length being surpassed by eight other bridges since its completion, it still has the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. It has been declared one of the modern Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world".

josy63 "If you're going to San Francisco" : je ne peux m'empêcher de penser à la voix Scott McKenzie... Ce pont en est l'emblème, l'image d'Epinal.
J'adore la dernière.

SADHYA I just had to find San Francisco Bay Blues sung by Jesse Fuller when I saw your lovely shots of the Golden Gate Bridge. Do you know it? You can find it on UTube.
