Spanning the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge evokes a sense of majesty for locals and travelers alike. One of the world's most famous suspension bridges is not only iconic, but also an engineering feat. The Bridge connects San Francisco to its northern neighbor, Marin County. At the time of its opening in 1937, it was both the longest and the tallest suspension bridge in the world, with a main span of 4,200 feet (1,280 m) and a total height of 746 feet (227 m).
