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

    Nice 360 view of SF. A must visit when in town!

    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

    Come late at night, 3am or past. Be quiet and enjoy the view.

    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.

    The murals inside are worth seeing

  • Clay F.

    One of my favorite views of the city. Only open till 5 PM and the parking is limited, but it's worth it.

    Molest the statue of Christopher Columbus

    Jenny Morrison · August 5, 2010
  • Torrey N.

    Because of his pose and Heroic proportions, when you stand in the right place, Columbus looks like he's holding hi pee pee.

  • Devon S.

    Walk up the steps from Levi Plaza for some exercise and a gorgeous hike along some private gardens.

    Devon Steven · November 14, 2011
  • Allie W.

    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.

    Allie Wandner · July 31, 2011
  • Dave D.

    Go to Coit Tower during Fleet Week and watch the air show from the top of the tower.

    A round trip on the weekend will take an hour and a half. The breakdown will be: 30 min wait to go up, 5 min walking around at the top, 55 min wait to go down #oneslowelevator #derp

    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!

    Go to Coit Tower, but only at night. You'll get a beautiful quite view of the city and you'll avoid the tourist rush.

    The only one ....! The special one!!!!

  • Ted R.

    The elevator ticket is worth it. Park by Levi Plaza and walk up the Filbert Steps

    Ted Rheingold · March 27, 2010
  • Rebecca B.

    A small price of $7 to see a 360° view of San Francisco. Worth every cent!

    Rebecca Brown · January 17, 2013
  • Cynthia Z.

    Almost cooler than the view is the collection of international coins people left on the window ledges.

    Cynthia Z · November 7, 2012
  • Maybs M.

    Walk from the bottom of the Filbert Street Steps to Coit Tower. You get a beautiful view on the way up, and some exercise!

    Starting place for the SF City Guides: Coit Tower Tour

    San Francisco City Guides · February 24, 2012
  • Cory O.

    For the full experience, park at the bottom of the hill and hike to the top. You'll pass through one of the most interesting neighborhoods in the city, and you'll be rewarded at the top with a view!

    Cory O'Brien · January 20, 2012
  • Randy S.

    Absolutely worth the climb up the steps... Gorgeous views!

    Randy Silk · January 16, 2012

    Did you know? The tower was built in honor of Lillie Coit, a volunteer firefighter. Her habits of gambling, smoking cigars, and wearing trousers made her a colorful character in her time. Read more

    The best view in town!

    The top of the tower has great panaromic views of the city.

    Ano Sundara · September 5, 2010
  • Mark B.

    Strangely enough, the line down is longer than the line up. However, cant beat the great 360 degree views of the city from the top.

    Mark B · August 5, 2013
  • Ian

    Not worth $7. Go to Twin Peaks instead.

    Ian · December 31, 2012
  • Ian M.

    Cool but probably not worth paying the $7 to go up

    Come celebrate the heart of San Francisco in our free animated 3D light spectacular under the dome at Westfield San Francisco Centre (865 Market Street) starting daily at 5pm until September 3, 2012

  • Josh R.

    $7 not worth the big schlep, plus they only take cash. View from the base is great.

    Josh R. · July 8, 2012
  • Albert Q.

    Open parking spots here on a Sunday morning. Come and beat the afternoon tourist rush.

    Albert Qian · May 7, 2012
  • Wouter M.

    Not worth 7$

    Wouter Maenhaut · November 19, 2011
