The Golden Gate Bridge was opened to the public on May 27, 1937.

It was constructed from January 1933 to May 1937.

The bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the Golden Gate.

Golden Gate is the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean.

The Golden Gate Bridge links the city of San Francisco to Marin County, California.

At 4,200 ft (1,280.2 m), it was the longest suspension bridge in the world until 1964.

I have already went across the bridge when we visited San Francisco.

After that I visited the Fisherman’s Wharf to eat clam chowder 🙂
