Coit Tower, at the top of Telegraph Hill in North Beach, was built when a wealthy heiress, Lillie Coit, left San Francisco a large part of her fortune to be used to beautify the city. The top of the tower is the highest point in the area. It’s said Lillie intended the tower as a monument to firefighters, and that it was meant to look like the nozzle of a fire hose. Aside from a unique, 360 degree view from the top, the tower also houses a museum with various depictions of San Francisco life in the 1930s. At the bottom, walkways (some on a sharp incline) pass by some truly picturesque cottages and gardens.
