Happy 83rd Birthday Golden Gate Bridge
Happy Birthday to the Golden Gate Bridge!
San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge was once called “the bridge that couldn’t be built;” today it is one the wonders of the modern world. This magnificent span, perhaps San Francisco’s most famous landmark, opened May 27, 1937, after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rock, and treacherous tides. It’s the country’s most iconic bridge that stretches across one of the world’s finest natural harbors.
