Coit Tower

On top of Telegraph Hill is Coit Tower, which is 210-foot long and was said to be built by philanthropist Lillie Hitchcock Coit in appreciation to the firefighters who fought the 1906 earthquake and fires, since the design of the tower resembles the shape of a fire hose nuzzle. Inside the tower there is a history museum and murals depicting working life in the state in the 1930s.

As you walk down the road from Coit Tower, you can see the stunning view of the city’s downtown area, as well as the bay and Golden Gate Bridge.
