Golden Gate Bridge header 


The Golden Gate Bridge continues to astound and inspire. Some believe its soaring grace and sublime elegance enhance the beauty of its site as few man-made structures do. Considered an Art Deco sculpture and a symphony in steel, the bridge has always inspired artists, poets, writers, and filmmakers. It has also become a symbol for communication, for the portal to the Pacific -- uniting America and Asia -- and for San Francisco, its magical city by the bay.
