Coit Tower's breathtaking panoramic view never ceases to amaze me. Located near the historic North Beach area, it is a must see. I would recommend going at night, even thought the small museum is closed. It tends to get overrun with tourist groups during the day and the view is much more stunning at night, with the city lights twinkling in the background. Bring some friends and a coat, and hike up the giant hill . . . you probably won't be able to find parking anywhere near it, but it's a fun walk. It's very romantic, so be prepared to find canoodling couples enjoying the scene.
