Although San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is not the world's widest, tallest, or most trafficked Bridge, and the Bridge's 4,200-foot-long main suspension span (the distance between the towers) ranks only 9th in the world in terms of length, Golden Gate Bridge is one of 'the World's Ten Most Amazing Views'.
The pedestrian railings, modest, uniform posts placed far enough apart to allow an unobstructed view, the lean light posts in an angled form, the wide, vertical ribbing on the horizontal tower bracing to accent the sun's light on the structure, the rectangular tower portals that decrease on ascent emphasizing the tower height, define Golden Gate Bridge's art deco form. It is this form which is known and admired all over the world.
Walking out onto the span from either end is one of the best ways to experience the immense scale of the structure and the perfect place to sing "San Francisco ... open your Golden Gate."
