Majestic Views

Sitting tall on Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower is a famous San Francisco landmark and an iconic part of the SF skyline. Built in 1933, Coit Tower honors the San Francisco fireman. Although many people rumored that the tower was built to look like a fireman's hose, the rumors are supposedly false. When you visit Coit Tower, you can take an elevator to the top for some amazing panoramic city views. However, if you don't feel like paying, the parking lot still offers some gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding area. Inside the tower on the ground floor, you will notice painted murals depicting life during the depression. So whether you want to take the elevator to the top or simply enjoy the architecture and the murals from the ground floor, Coit Tower is a must see San Francisco attraction.

Utrip Tips

*A great way to get to Coit Tower is by climbing up the Telegraph Hill Steps. Once you have seen the Tower, head down the other side of the hill and explore the North Beach neighborhood.
