San Francisco's Coit Tower

 Coit Tower is one of San Francisco's most iconic skyline fixtures. This white slender tower offers visitors a chance to see the most extraordinary panoramic views of downtown, the San Francisco Bay, and the Golden and Bay bridges. Perched atop a tall hill not far from Lombard Street, the views of the city from the top of the tower will take your breath away.


This is a must see attraction for tourists and locals alike. Inside the tower are amazing murals adorning the lobby portraying the life of working class Californians during the depression era.
