San Francisco: A view of the Golden Gate Bridge for Lazy bums

Too lazy to hike anywhere... If only I have a Baymax....
If you are not sure yourself, if you are a lazy bum, check: 12 Funny Signs that You Are a Lazy Bum

If you are indeed, not one, exit this page and read The best spots to view the Golden Gate Bridge instead. But if you are, continue reading.

1. Twin peaks
You are going to Twin Peaks anyway, so catch a beautiful view of the bridge and the whole city, unless there is fog… Wait wait, there is a way you do not need to hike that long to get to the peak. Request an Uber, done!

2. The Walt Disney Family Museum
Amazing glass view of the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the many highlights during the tour and you are in Disneyland (sort of)!!! What more can you ask for?

3. De Young Museum Observation deck
Admission to the museum itself requires entrance fees. Just walk pass the ticket counter, to the right, to the right! open : daily til 4:30 p.m.

4. Aquatic Park
Just walk to the end of the pier, you won’t be disappointed. Great place to watch the boats and have some alone time.

5. Library at the University of California
Located at 530 Parnassus Avenue, this is the best study area in San Francisco (with great views)! Suddenly everyone became bookworms, I wonder why.
6. Wave Organ
Ignore the sinister humming, and come here for the 360 degree view of everything around.

7. Coit Tower
Come here not just for the controversial murals, don’t forget the killer 360-degree view of the city and bay.

8. Strawberry hill
I assure you, it is a short hike. Come here for a picnic with the best view in San Francisco.

9. Drive through the Waldo Tunnel
Approach SF by Route 101 from the Marin Headlands, you will go through the Waldo tunnel, where you can enjoy the view right upon exiting. But what’s with all those honking??

10. Drive on the Golden Gate Bridge
Do it just because you have a car. Imagine apes jumping on your car when you are on the bridge.
