Great place to take a walk along the marina and check out all of the fishing boats. If you go during the afternoon you might see the boats coming in with fish fresh from the ocean! This is also where you can sign up for group fishing tours or charters and go dolphin or whale watching.
We loved the Dolphin/Whale watch tour we took from here. Saw lots of dolphins; but, didn't see any whales the day we went out. Had some rain and choppy waves which were fun to sail through.
You see fishing boat yard, dock and restaurants. Very interesting.
Must-see spot for fishing, sightseeing, charters and restaurants.
The most artificial tourist spot in SF. I suggest staying away from this spot. Instead visit the Ferry Building, Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, the Mission.
The area is clean and family friendly. Tourist spots as well as local restaurants and shops.
Typical tourist stuff but still a lot of fun. This city is so culturally diverse thanks to its acceptance of foreigners, that there is always a new and excited event happening.
Great place to walk along to find some great places to eat. A very scenic stroll!
This place is very touristy but it can be fun to explore. There are a great deal of restaurants and shops. I am sad that Rainforest Cafe and Joe's Crab Shack have closed but there are other places that I like to eat. Two of my favorites that are still around are Hard Rock Cafe and Boudin Bakery. Most of the shops sell souvenirs and they all seem to sell the same stuff. But you can find a few unique stores and some discounts.
Very touristy but fun place to see if you are looking to grab something to eat, drink or shop for those souviners that adorn most people's houses.
A staple San Fran attraction. Lots of restaurants and bars and shops to entertain anyone. They even have a big carousel that is fun for all! Definitely a must see attraction.
I really enjoyed Fisherman’s Wharf. The only downside is the expensive parking ($9 per hour). There is so much in the area to do until you could easily end up spending 4 hours there. My favorite part was the food. I had the best crab sandwich from a crab stand called Sabella & Latorre. It was cheaper than one of the other nearby crab stands. Parking trick, you can at least save on parking by patronizing one of the crab stands and getting your parking validated for up to an hour. Also, there are homeless people in Fisherman’s Wharf but they won’t bother you. Great views here as well.
Great place to get fresh seafood at a good price, plus you can catch a part of the Princess Diaries set!
