Coit Tower is an iconic tubular landmark in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, California. When planning a group trip to Coit Tower, you’ll want to consider booking a San Francisco charter bus rental company to make transportation a breeze. With a charter bus, your group can skip parking nightmares in the urban neighborhood.
The simple yet iconic tower in northern San Francisco is named after Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy eccentric patron of the city’s firefighters. When she passed away in 1929, she left a substantial amount of money “for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city I have always loved.” The funds were used to build a monument to her beloved volunteer firefighters and the Coit Tower. The Coit Tower was designed by Arthur Brown Jr.’s firm. Many people think the tower was designed to resemble a fire hose nozzle, however this rumor is not true.
Inside the tower, you’ll find murals painted in 1934 by a group of artists from the Public Works of Art Project. They depict life in San Francisco during the Great Depression. In that same year, violence broke out over some controversial elements of the paintings. Despite the radical content, the frescoes opened to the public in the same year.
Getting your group to and from Coit Tower can be a bit messy in the busy San Francisco streets. Your group will have a much easier time if you get dropped off by a San Francisco bus rental company. You won’t have to navigate parking or worry about group members getting lost. You can book a San Francisco bus rental to handle all of your transportation needs for your trip. Field trip groups can book a school bus or minibus. Business groups usually enjoy having a coach bus to shuttle them from work, to the site, and then around to other nearby attractions.
