Coit Tower - Review

The Coit Tower, otherwise called the Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, is a 64 m tall tower located on the Pioneer Park, Telegraph Hill. It was built in 1933 in honor of Lillie Hitchcock Coits, who died in 1929, an eccentric, trendsetter and a diehard San Francisco lover. She was wearing trousers long before it was acceptable for women to do so. She played a prominent role in developing San Fransico’s firefighting efforts. Upon her death, she bequeathed a third of her fortune to the city, to be used to beautify it. The tower is a highly popular attraction and as such there’s often a long traffic line for access. The rotunda at the top, from where one can catch beautiful views of the city, is free to visitors and covered in beautiful Murals. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by San Francisco itinerary 7 days.

Coit Tower, San Francisco Reviews

  • This beautiful and iconic San Francisco landmark offers stunning views of the city by the bay. Best time to visit is a sunny morning. Park your car near Levi‘s Plaza below Telegraph Hill and hike up the Filbert Street staircases though all the gardens on the east slope of the hill. The lobby of the tower is decorated with beautifully historical murals. It is worth getting up on the tower to take in the amazing views.

  • All I can say, is this is a MUST SEE! The views, of the City are absolutely amazing. As a teenager, we'd go up at night. That's when I fell in love, with this tower. You can see, as far as the eye can see. The lights at night time, are beautiful. I've never been, during the day. I can't wait, to go back one day. Be sure, to bring a camera. You'll get amazing pictures up there.

  • Great views, with water on 3 sides. Hear carefully and you will surely hear the wild parrots, andr if you wait long enough see the bunch too. And hummingbirds too. Take the steps on the west side of you are a gardening lover, or on any side for more majestic views.

  • Coit Tower is a historic 210 ft tower located within Pioneer Park in San Francisco. Funded after the death of Lillie Hitchcock Coit as part of her estate, monies were to be used "for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city which I have always loved." The art deco tower was built on the top of Telegraph Hill in 1933 and is now a prominent San Francisco landmark. Built from 3 nesting reinforced concrete cylinders, the inner cylinder houses the elevator while the center cylinder contains a stairway. The outer cylinder supports the observation deck which is located at 178 ft above ground. The view from the observation deck allows a 360° view of San Francisco, including the pier area, San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz. One can also view the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge, as well as Lombard Street, Nob Hill and Russian Hill. On a clear day, the views are fantastic. Though there is a fee to go to the observation deck, it is free (?) to enter the ground level rotunda for viewing Coit Tower's famous fresco murals. The murals, commissioned under a New Deal federal employment project and painted in the 1930's, depict the inequality of workers and social injustice. They are remarkable and represent worker's difficult times in Californian history in areas such as industry and farming. Coit Tower is an amazing part of San Francisco's architectural history as well as a landmark that offers fantastic views of the city below. A word of warning though, the parking lot is small and the lines to the observation deck are long. Current fees are $6.00 per adult (resident), $8.00 (non-resident). Pre-purchased time-specific tickets can be bought online to avoid the long lines.

  • What an architecture! Its an icon of san francisco. Its. 210 feet tower with a great view of the city & the bay.
