When’s the best time to visit Golden Gate Bridge and what are parking options?

Taking public transit to the Bridge is highly recommended because of limited parking spaces.

There are also two sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists that end ion beautiful Golden Gate Park.
What are the best viewpoints to photograph the bridge?
On a clear day, head northwest to the rugged Marin Headlands to snap the best pictures for the Golden Gate Bridge with a San Francisco skyline backdrop. Located on the Northwest side, Baker Beach offers stunning views and the images of the Bridge from Battery Spencer are some of the most famous in the world.
