Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill offers one of the best views in San Francisco. Perched high above the city, the views are fantastic. For a small fee you can take the elevator to the top of the tower.
The tower was built during the 1930's and the lobby area offers some colorful and interesting murals painted as part of the Public Works of Art Project.
Coit Tower is accessible by car, but the parking lot is relatively small and usually full. If you wish to park, you most likely need to wait in line on the street approaching the tower for a while before you grab a parking spot. Alternately, you can park elsewhere and walk up the (steep) steps that lead to the tower or take public transportation.
