This Sunday, May 27, 2012 marks the 75th Birthday for the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Opened on May 27, 1937, the bridge withstood time (with a lot of help from many people of course) and did what most thought was impossible back in those days… It connected San Francisco to Marin County. And it is still standing strong today.
Back in those days, San Francisco was the largest American city still served primarily by ferry boats, and even though many people wanted a bridge, many doubted that it could ever be built here due to many factors like strong wind and strong currants.

Today, many people use this bridge everyday. By car, by bike, and people can also walk across by using the pedestrian walkway.
While many of us are reminded by all the tourists continuously coming to San Francisco to take pictures of this beautiful bridge, most of us take this icon for granted.
So it’s really nice that we are all coming together and partying it up this
