    Don't take Muni -- climb up the hill that Coit Tower sits on. It's a brutal series of stairs.

    Enjoy the views from the observation deck but don’t forget to check out the socialist-leaning WPA-era murals in the base of the tower as well. - Green Guide Editor

    Coit Tower is a monument to the firefighters of San Francisco. It was commissioned by Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy socialite who loved to chase fires. It took 5 years to construct.

    Stand at all 4 points around the tower, take pictures at eye level using the Dermandar app and create a 360 panorama of the entire city from Coit Tower. It's cool, you'll like it.

    Very limited parking available so utilize the SF Muni system. #39 picks up at Pier 39 and takes you straight there. $2 for the ride up!
