The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km), three-mile-long (4.8 km) channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County, bridging both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States

The history of California can be divided into: the Native American period; European exploration period from 1542 to 1769; the Spanish colonial period, 1769 to 1821; the Mexican period, 1821 to 1848; and United States statehood, which continues to this present day.California was settled from the North by successive waves of arrivals during the last 10,000 years. It was one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse areas in pre-Columbian North America. After contact with Spanish explorers, most of the Indians died out from European diseases.

The California State Capitol Building is also called the “People’s Building.” This late 19th century structure symbolizes the politics and government of the state of California and houses the offices of the Governor, the Senate, and other important political bodies. The building was constructed and planned by M. Frederic Butler, who used the neoclassical style of architecture. The building is a famous visitor attraction, with over 750,000 visitors visiting the building every year. One striking feature of the building is the similarity of its dome to that of the dome of the White House in Washington, D.C.
