No. 8 (tie) Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

10 of 21

Annual Visitors: 15,000,000

Gaze toward this luminous orange suspension bridge from the hills to the north just after sunset when bay and sky turn indigo and the skyline beyond glows like alabaster—then you’ll understand its popularity with bikers, joyriders, pedestrians, and, yes, drivers. The span celebrated its 75th anniversary in May 2012 and launched guided tours and an expanded visitors’ center with a green-screen photo op that makes it look as if you’re climbing the bridge’s lofty cables.
