Coit Tower in San Francisco offers terrific views of the downtown area and bay. It stands on Telegraph Hill, at a height of 210 feet and you can see it around large parts of San Francisco. When you look at it from a distance, you can see that it resembles a fire hose and there’s a very good reason for this.
Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is one of the most recognisable and iconic bridges in the world. It spans the Frisco bay and you have to get close to appreciate just how big it is.
This is an island with an infamous history, and much of the former prison here remains intact. The biggest and most recognisable building still standing is the cell block and the audio tour of the building includes the thoughts of former prisoners. On your visit, you’ll see some further buildings too and you’ll also see the remains of others, like the governor’s mansion which burned down in a fire during the American Indian occupation of the island.
