This is a great spot to get a good view of the city. For a few dollars take the creaky old elevator (while trying not to think of past earthquakes) to the top of the tower for a 360 degree view of the city. The park setting outside the tower is a great place for a picnic lunch. The best way to get up to the tower is via bus. Parking is sparse and the road narrow so navigating up in a rental car may be less than ideal.
