    Fantastic views of the city. Keep in mind the queue for the elevator moves slowly, but well worth waiting for.

    Definetely a must do, when you're in SF. You should take the steps to make the amazing view even more rewarding. I took the ones from Greenwich Street - nice wakeup-workout.

    This place was neat. Go on a Monday and you'll find free parking. Restrooms are a bit gross but overall cool.

    Nice hike up, but unless you go up the tower the views are mostly blocked by the surrounding trees. Very touristy.

    I think "coin tower" is a more appropriate name, since the best part is to check the coins left from all over the world. ;b the view there is amazing..

    The view is spectacular! You need to pay in the gift shop and get a stamp for the elevator to get up top.

    The views from the top are worth the $8 elevator ticket.

    Excellent views day or night. Pair with a visit to Tony's pizza. You'll burn a few calories working your way up...

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

    Walking there makes the journey all worth it. Yes, it'll be all uphill.

    This is by far my favorite spot in the city. A perfect combination of art, history, and great city views.

    Best place to get pictures of the city, period. Be mindful of other people waiting to take a picture in certain corners and be sure to come a little bit before sunset if you want to get the best shot.

    Slightly disappointing due to small inset windows with the glass at the wrong side. Feels like you can't see out.

    It's 7 bucks to go to the top but the view from the bottom of the tower is pretty good on it's own. Make sure to take the stairs!
