If you take a cruise that stops in San Francisco then you will most likely pass under the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the city’s most iconic landmarks.  The bridge opened for traffic in 1937 after four and a half years of construction.  Its 4,200-foot long suspension span was the longest in the world when constructed and is still the 9th longest.  The term Golden Gate refers to the Golden Gate Strait which is the entrance to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.
