Favorite Views of the Golden Gate Bridge

Most visitors to San Francisco include a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge.  Usually, they'll take photos from the north (Marin) or south (San Francisco) vista points.  While these areas afford nice views, they are not my favorites.

My favorite view is from Battery Spencer off Conzelman Road, just west of bridge on the Marin County side.  Here you feel like your on top of the bridge.  Travel further up Conzelman to Hawk Hill and you'll get a view like this:

 

My favorite place to view the bridge from the San Francisco side is from El Camino del Mar in Lincoln Park.  Here too you get a view from west of the bridge but you are not as high up as from the Marin side.

If you have a favorite spot to view the Golden Gate Bridge, please comment below.  If you would like to take a private tour that includes these view points, please contact Blue Heron Custom Tours and Travel at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or Rick@BlueHeronTours.com.
