On my last solo lunch before Chelsea returned, I decided I’d hike up the hill to the magnificent Coit Tower – YOLO! We often hike up there on our lunches because the views are ridiculously beautiful and it’s fun to check out all the amazing homes that are nestled in the hillside along the crooked walking paths. We’ve been up to Coit Tower many times but had never gone inside the tower and up to the top. It was a beautiful day when I walked up there, so I thought what the hell. I’m going to buy the ticket and take the janky, old elevator to the top to see what’s up there. You have to pay to go and we always thought, what’s the point? We know of so many great free look outs. But now I know the point. And I recommend it to everyone, tourist or not.
(Down there is where we usually eat when we are “minion” status)
(I love arch-ways and looking out over the city)
(The windows have clear covered window panes on them so that you can’t throw things out the window at innocent people BUT you can slide things through between the wall and window pane to leave a lucky coin or apparently business cards are hot)
(360 degree views if you go to each window)
(It’s completely open at the top. Best sunroof ever)
(A lovely view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the base of Coit Tower)
(And on the other side of the base of Coit Tower is a magnificent view of downtown, the Bay Bridge, and some fabulous rooftop hang outs)
You know this city is incredible. The more I explore and act like I’m visiting, the more treasures I tend to find.
I will have to say though, I’ve missed my Frover and I’m so happy she’s back. We are already working on our next blideo and somehow we’ve suckered some key players into the mix. I.F.F people! Enjoy your weekend.
Reblogged this on Just a little Brit and commented:
Even when it’s cold, it’s still beautiful in San Francisco!
Cool! My wife recognized this having been there and being a native of the L.A. area. Now freezing with me up here in Michigan! Great shots Brittany!
In the 20 years I lived in San Francisco, I did not know that it was possible to get inside Coit Tower!
i miss the “City By The Bay” but I have become a genuine Texan and will spend the rest of my days here in Austin.
Thanks for the great photos and the nice writeup
Great pics! We’ve never been to the top of Coit Tower either – will have to check it out.
You’ve suckered some key players into the mix? Really now? Well, maybe THIS sucker ain’t so sweet. So “suck on that” you IJFL’ers.
Beautiful shots! Wish I could go and see those amazing views. And the bridge!!
