Golden Gate Bridge Walk and Talk
Tour lead by Mike Daly (Ironworkers 377) with SF City Guides plus others.
Although other bridges are now taller and longer than this 1930’s icon, the Golden Gate Bridge remains the most recognized structure in the world behind the Eiffel Tower. Learn why the bridge was so hard to build, how it changed the building of bridges around the world and what today’s bridge workers face as they maintain the world’s largest sculpture. This unique tour combines historical content from City Guides with a walk on the world’s most famous bridge led by its very own ironworkers and painters.
