One of my favorite places to take friends on a visit to the Bay Area is the GG bridge. Most people go to the SF side but I prefer to go up into the Marin headlands and tromp around the old bunkers. Photograph wise I think its the ideal tourist shot too. You get the bridge and SF skyline also I love the abandoned bunkers. Click on the photo to see some of our shenanigans when we took our friend Erin to both sides of the Bridge.
