The Golden Gate Bridge is a massive suspension structure. The bridge in San Francisco spans one point seven miles across what is called "The Golden Straight."
The icon bridge first saw construction in 1933 and was opened in 1937.
Today, 110,000 vehicles pass over it daily. A toll of up to $8 is charged to each vehicle heading down the 6 lane pass.
The Frommer's travel guide reports it is the most photographed bridge in the world.
The bridge was dedicated as a California landmark in 1987 and a San Francisco landmark in 1999.
