Sydney has the Opera House. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. And San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge.
It may not be the only long suspension bridge in San Francisco, but it is certainly the most famous and, therefore, the most celebrated.
And today San Francisco is celebrating the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th anniversary. The orange suspension bridge first opened on May 27, 1937, and has since become one of the most-photographed and well-loved bridges in the world.
So, in honor of its 75th birthday, here are a handful of photos of the Golden Gate Bridge from my own recent trip to the City by the Bay.
If you ask me, it's impressive in any kind of weather.
Happy 75th birthday, Bridge!
