Coit Tower


210-foot art deco, concrete tower atop Telegraph Hill, financed by Lillie Hitchcock Coit in 1934 as a monument to San Francisco firefighters. Visitors can pay $7 to ride the elevator to the top of the tower for fantastic 360 views of the city. The interior walls of the tower are embellished with Diego Rivera-style fresco murals, most of them depicting life in California during the Great Depression.
