The Golden Gate Bridge is a one-mile-wide suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate - connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World. Taking a little more than four years to build, the Golden Gate Bridge opened in 1937, becoming both the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world.
