I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area all of my life and I have never been to Coit Tower. Coit Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in San Francisco. It was built in 1933 with money provided by Lillian Coit who was a socialite who liked to chase fires. You could say that she was a firefighter groupie and was a honorary firefighter. After her death, one-third of her fortune was "to be expended in an appropriate manner for the purpose of adding beauty to the city I have loved."
As I said I had never been there until my son wanted to go. So we went:
|To get there, there is about 274 steps one must travel|
|A view of the Bay and the Bay Bridge from the steps|
|Coit Tower from the base|
And great views of San Francisco:
|Love the rooftop tennis courts|
