Visited Coit Tower for the first time last month. Lengthy wait in line for the elevator ride to the top, but enjoyed a good visit offering panoramic views toward the G G Bridge and the city center. One observation is that members of a group...More

The place is having limited parking space. Hard to get to it. However, it was worth the wait for the parking. It is nice place to see the city 360 degree. One can ride bus to the place as well.

Wow the view from here really makes you appreciate the city. Got some amazing pictures, waited in a 5 minute line, spent about 20 minutes viewing the beautiful breathtaking sight at the top for a small $8 entrance charge. Staff was friendly.

It's a nice walk up to tower area if not driving. Very limited parking area . Site needs more security as some gang members were there during our visit and no security on site. Other than that, I would strongly recommend visiting if in SF....More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
