we all look at the Golden Gate bridge but the San Francisco Bay bridge during the night is a must. All Lights that go upand down. Just magic.

Bay Bridge is a must attraction when visiting San Francisco, do not recommend driving on the bridge if you have limited time in the city, a good place to see it street crossing by the water, Harrison & The Embarcadero.
