Coit Tower

TIME : 2016/2/18 10:35:15

The exclamation mark on San Francisco skyline is Coit Tower, with 360-degree views of downtown and wrap-around 1930s murals glorifying SF workers – once denounced as Communist, but now a landmark. For a wild parrot's panoramic view of San Francisco 210ft above the city, take the elevator up to the tower's open-air platform. To glimpse seven recently restored WPA murals up a hidden stairwell on the second floor, join the 11am tour offered every Wednesday and Saturday (free; donations welcome).
