A few months ago I finally–after living in the Bay Area for 8 years–went to the top of Coit Tower. Why? Well because someone who doesn't live here was visiting, of course. I doubt I would have ever gone to Alcatraz a few years back if my mother and sister hadn't made it part of their visit.
It was very pretty up there. San Francisco is a beautiful city and I know how very fortunate I am to be able to live here, even if I complain about its public transit on Twitter like, all the time.
