"See great views of the Bay Area"

San Francisco Wedding In September
San Francisco   |   September, 2012   |   Attraction

"Take the number 39 bus from Washington Square Park to reach the top. Avoid driving as the parking lot is tiny. Look for Diego Rivera murals painted in the 1930s. Nice location to take photos of the Bay...and maybe a new family portrait!"

Oakland Wedding In October
Oakland   |   October, 2009   |   Attraction

"Coit Tower was built in Pioneer Park atop Telegraph Hill in 1933 at the bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit to beautify the City of San Francisco; Lillie bequeathed one-third of her estate to the City of San Francisco "to be expended in an appropriate manner for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city which I have always loved"."

"Historicial Tower"

Gala Spectacular Wedding
Oakland   |   May, 2009   |   Sightseeing

"Coit Tower stands atop Telegraph Hill in San Francisco's Pioneer Park, offers fantastic views of San Francisco including the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park ("Aquatic Park"), Alcatraz, Pier 39, Angel Island, Treasure Island, the Bay Bridge, Russian Hill, the Financial District, Lombard Street, and Nob Hill."

Meaghan and Tony's Wedding
San Francisco   |   April, 2009   |   Attraction

"This spot sports some of the best views of San Francisco, as well as incredible residential gardens and the famous wild parrots of Telegraph Hill. You can get up the hill on foot or by car, but don’t bother paying to ride the elevator up the tower—you can check out the depression-era murals (and their half-hidden socialist iconography) in the lobby for free. In the words of Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo: “Well, that’s the first time I’ve ever been thankful for Coit Tower.”"

Helen and Matt's Wedding
Burlingame   |   August, 2008   |   Attraction

"Coit Tower is at the top of Telegraph Hill. You can walk down into the strange neighborhood without streets (but with long staircases) from here. This neighborhood was featured in the movie The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill."

Emily and Steve's Wedding
Mill Valley, CA   |   August, 2008   |   Attraction

"Another of the San Francisco icons, in North Beach. This one is good for the views, although there isn't much else to do once you've taken the elevator ride to the top."

Burlingame Wedding In June
Burlingame   |   June, 2008   |   Bay Area Attractions

"The view from here is one of the most impressive in San Francisco, taking in the Bay, two bridges, and the Marin Headlands. Inside, the first floor is decorated with excellent murals, commissioned by the WPA in 1933, depicting San Francisco history."

Katie and Adam's Wedding
San Francisco   |   August, 2007   |   Attraction

"Great views of the city and interesting WPA murals."

Riquelen and Okem's Wedding
San Francisco   |   August, 2007   |   Attraction

"Conventional wisdom holds that this monument is shaped like a fire-hose nozzle. It is not, at least not by design. The tower is the gift of Lilly Hitchcock Coit, an eccentric heiress who managed to stand out in a city full of them. Lilly's particular passion was for the San Francisco Fire Department. So when the money she left in her will for The City's beautification was used to construct the art deco tower on Telegraph Hill in 1932, people made assumptions. The view from here is one of the most impressive in San Francisco, taking in the Bay, two bridges, and the Marin Headlands. Inside, the first floor is decorated with excellent murals, commissioned by the WPA in 1933, depicting San Francisco history."
