What You’ll See

If you take the elevator to the top of Coit Tower you will catch one of the best panoramic views of San Francisco and the bay. Nonetheless, inside of the base of the tower is covered in murals. The Works Progress Administration commissioned these in the 1934 and they depict life in California during the Great Depression.

In The Area

Surrounding Coit Tower is the beautiful Pioneer Park and the residential neighborhood of Telegraph Hill. The area is relatively quiet and some of its loudest guests might be the flocks of parrots. They have established a breeding colony in Telegraph Hill and have become popular thanks to the 2003 documentary, titled The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. Adjacent to the neighborhood is North Beach, a much more busy community with excellent restaurants and nightlife.

FAQs

Q2: Is there a cost for visiting the tower?

A2: There is no cost for visiting the tower, but if you would like to ride the elevator to the top, then there is a $7 charge. Since the tower already sits atop Telegraph Hill, there are fantastic views even from the tower’s base.
