It’s really a spare structure… concrete and steel. Little in the way of ornamentation. It just happens to sit across a scenic gap between points of land in Northern California. It is worth a visit if you can spare some time. Look at it from Crissy Field, Ft. Point and Lands End in San Francisco. Then head over to Ft. Baker and the Marin Headlands, especially Hawk Hill, in Marin County. It’s even fun to view from below on the deck of a boat. The Berkeley Marina or Treasure Island will give you a nice look at the gate.
Why bother? Well, today is the 79th anniversary of the day the Golden Gate Bridge was opened. Make some spare time and find a bench and soak in the view.
