San Francisco’s Coit Tower

  • Coit Tower in San Francisco
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, Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge. 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.
