Let's do a photowalk/scavenger hunt at the Golden Gate Bridge! How many of you have never walked the bridge? Let's do it!
Dress comfortably in layers, in comfortable shoes. Bring a hat or sunglasses. Pack snacks and water. After we walk the bridge and get some great shots, let's grab a quick bite at a to-be-determined location.
We will park in the Southeast Side Visitor Parking Lot.
BE ON TIME.
This parking area has a range of visitor services, including a café, gift center, gardens and an array of scenic vistas.
