Sutro Tower

Impressive Radio and TV Tower

Must See

1 La Avanzada St
San Francisco, CA 94131


Sutro Tower's distinctive red-and-white prongs rise over Mount Sutro in West San Francisco; the tower is the source of many of San Francisco's broadcasting stations, and its construction solved the problem of reaching the varied terrain of the Bay Area. Not open to the public, Sutro Tower is nonetheless an indelible part of San Francisco's skyline and recognizable from most parts of the Bay.
