There are many ways to enjoy the Golden Gate and this iconic San Francisco sight can be experienced by merely driving across the bridge. This is something I've frequented to and from my trips to Santa Rosa, however, you can't really appreciate the size and height unless you walk on it- but why walk when you can bike or even better- ROLLERBLADE! At 1.7 miles in length, this is completely doable and on a nice sunny day you can witness the magnitude of this beautiful span and see why it's the most photographed bridge in the world.

And here's a Golden Gate Bridge fun fact: Since many people question why the bridge is anything but golden, the actual paint color of the bridge is International Orange, contrary to the red finish. The term Golden Gate refers to the Golden Gate Strait which is the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.

I used to love rollerblading as a kid and this by far is a fun spot to glide through and enjoy breathtaking views of the city.
