“Constantly bustling -- people use the square mostly as a space to relax and soak up a bit of sun, and to wallow in the atmosphere created by the surrounding cable cars, hotels and shoppers. Great for people watching! There is free wi-fi provided by the city. Look under the leaves of the greenery in the planters, and you'll find a few power outlets for your laptop.”

Landmark
“The height of the Coit Tower is 210 feet. It has amazing views of the city in a clear day. However, if you don't want to pay to go up all the way to the tower, you can arrive at the bottom of the tower and you will also find very nice views. Stroll around the neighborhood, since there are nice restaurants in that area.”
