Interesting facts about the Golden Gate Bridge! i.e.: Why the name Golden Gate?

The Golden Gate Strait is the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The strait is approximately three-miles long by one-mile wide with currents ranging from 4.5 to 7.5 knots. It is generally accepted that the strait was named "Chrysopylae", or Golden Gate, by John C. Fremont, Captain, topographical Engineers of the U.S. Army circa 1846. It reminded him of a harbor in Instanbul named Chrysoceras or Golden Horn.

fun in san francisco- alcatraz island5. Alcatraz, the notorious former prison, is located on an island of the same name in the middle of San Francisco Bay.  Some of the United States’ most notorious criminals were incarcerated there.  Though several tried, no inmate ever made a successful escape from “The Rock.”  The prison was closed in the 1960’s and stories about Alcatraz are legendary.  A visit to Alcatraz today is fascinating.  Recorded cell-house tours are available, allowing visitors to learn about the prison as they explore the buildings and grounds.  To reach the island, take an Alcatraz Cruises ferry from Pier 43.  Advance reservations are recommended, 415-981-ROCK (7625).
