"The Overlook" Coit Tower Tip by wilocrek
Coit Tower, San Francisco: 138 reviews and 265 photos
Coit Tower has long been a symbol of San Francisco, and why not, it rises magestically above the city offering unobstructed views of the entire bay. With one long sweeping view you can take in the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Embarcadero, Bay Bridge, and the down town area. Additionally the hill that Coit Tower resides on is immersed with pine trees with houses built into the hill separated by tight winding foot paths which adds to the whole experience. There is a elevator that will take you to the top of Coit Tower, the cost is $3.50 per ride, but its well worth the cost as the views of the city are incredible. The tower was built in 1933 on top of Telegraph Hill, and contrary to popular belief it was not designed to look like the nozzle of a fire hose, rather just a wonderful coincidence.
