All great cities have an iconic structure that identifies them at a glance. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. London has Big Ben. And San Francisco is easily recognized by its Golden Gate Bridge. The bridge is one of the most beautiful suspension bridges in the world, and certainly the most photographed. When it was built in 1933, it was both the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world at that time. The bridge’s characteristic orange color was chosen to make it more visible during the periods of fog that often roll into San Francisco Bay.
