Fisherman's Wharf

Yes, Fisherman’s Wharf caters almost entirely to the city’s visitors but there are good reasons for even the most hardened San Francisco resident to visit including the charming vintage arcade Musée Mécanique, the National Maritime Historical Park’s fleet of restored vintage sailing ships and the USS Pampanito submarine. At Pier 39, ride visit the raucous California Sea Lions at K Dock, shop or ride the merry-go-round. When you’ve had enough harbor excitement, grab a meal of local seafood and sourdough bread at Pier 45’s simple stalls and historic restaurants just feet from where commercial fishermen bring in their daily catch. Afterwards, indulge in a decadent dessert at Ghiradelli Square, home of the famed chocolatier.

Fun place to walk around, grab a famous chowder bowl (who can resist?) and enjoy a sunny or foggy day in the bay! The great bus system makes it easy to take the bus (or uber) from Union Square & come explore without worrying about the parking. You can wander around & run into Ripley’s (although kind of outdated), Ghiradeli chocolate square or the Boudin bakery in-between bread bowls.

Yes it's crowded, but that's just because it is a super cool place to visit and it's on every tourist's to-do list! Whether you're going to eat some sourdough and chowder or look at the seals or just take in the sights and street performers, there's entertainment all around you so you'll never be bored here.
