这个 加州 地标早已为世人所熟知，这座 世界上 最大 的单孔 吊桥 之一，是 旧金山 一张闪亮的名片。 红色的桥体横跨旧金山湾和金门海峡，雄伟 壮观 。 The Golden Gate Bridge can seem an indelible part of San Francisco’s urban landscape. But of course, the bridge leads out of San Francisco to connect with Marin County, and residents there can lay just as strong a claim to the iconic orange span. Prior to the construction of the bridge, Sausalito, the city on the northern side of Golden Gate Strait, served as a transit hub. Commuters interested in crossing to San Francisco boarded ferries in Sausalito. The construction of the bridge didn’t convert Sausalito into a metropolis, but rather, seems to have helped the city become something of an idyllic coastal getaway from the urban bustle of San Francisco.
