A landmark of San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf is a strip extending from Ghirardelli Square all the way to Pier 35 and close to popular destinations such as Chinatown and the Lombard Street. This is home to a wealth of shops and restaurants and lively street shows can be seen everywhere. Famous sites such as Alcatraz Island, Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay Bridge can also be sighted in the distance. The Fisherman's Wharf is close the the bay, so do not miss out on the fresh and delicious seafood. At Pier 39, sea lions can also be seen lying idly on rafts for a bit of sunbathing, making a most adorable scene.
San Francisco 39 is a very busy tourist attraction, also known as Fisherman's Wharf. There are two main attractions: cruise ships and aquariums. It takes about an hour and a half by boat. It can pass through the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Devil Island and other places. Everyone will have a headphone cable to listen to the Chinese explanation. It's very detailed. It's all along the way. We didn't go to the aquarium. The poudin restaurant is recommended for dinner, where the seafood soup is delicious.
San Francisco has the world-renowned San Francisco Bay Area, Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman's Wharf attractions, and the fisherman's Wharf must be the most popular tourist attraction. There are many markets, shopping malls and restaurants, trams jingling through the streets, harbor fishing boats and yacht masts, a vibrant scene. San Francisco Ocean National History Park, Goradelli Square and the Museum of Machinery are all located in the fisherman's wharf area. Unfortunately, time is too tight to visit one by one. The most pleasant spot is the seafood glutton!
San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is a must, just like Beijing you must go to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Pier 39 is the most famous fisherman's wharf, you can see sea lions, there are many boutiques, you can buy refrigerators as souvenirs.
I like this place very much, mainly because there are many delicious, especially crabs and sour bread there. Personally, I think crabs are still delicious, basically about $15 to $20. We can also take a cruise boat all the way to visit the Golden Gate Bridge and watch the scenery along the coast and the famous Devil Island prison there. It's a good tourist attraction.
Is Fisherman's Wharf touristy? Of course it is, but everyone here is on vacation, happy and smiling, so get it off your to do list and enjoy the wharf for what it is. Swing by Ghirardelli Square, play old school games at Musée Méchanique and visit Pier 39 (to say hi to its resident sea lions). For food, you've got to stick with the classics. Grabbing a sourdough bread bowl of chowder off the street will do in a pinch, but if you're going to go all in on the wharf, why not head to Boudin Sourdough Bakery & Cafe (check out the breads made in the shape of turtles and other cool critters in the bakery) or go to Alioto's Waterside Cafe (and get the ultimate San Francisco treat... Dungeness crab or traditional SF-style cioppino)?
Few cities in America are as adept at wholesaling their historical sites as San Francisco, which has converted Fisherman's Wharf into one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. It is must see area, scenery is beyond words, if you are into people watching, you won't believe some of the thing you see. The seafood is the best you will find anywhere, straight from the ocean to you.-- the only trolling going on at Fisherman's Wharf these days is for tourist dollars. Nonetheless, everyone always seems to be enjoying themselves as they stroll down Pier 39 on a sunny day, especially the kids.
Fisherman's Wharf is that quintessential downtown neighborhood that showcases the city's grittiest, quirkiest, strangest behavior and characters. Okay, I'm sure other neighborhoods are comparable, but I definitely found myself entertained at the Wharf. People-watching is a fantastic sport here, but so is shopping and ducking into over-glamorized, touristy, gimmicky shops and restaurants. It's almost like the Times Square of San Fran - albeit smaller and less grandiose.
San Francisco's #1 visitor destination Fisherman's Wharf offers the city's freshest seafood at it's popular restaurants. A bowl of clam chowder in a sour dough bread bowl is not to be missed. Street performers abound entertaining visitors with magic, juggling, and even eating fire! At night live music, dancing, theaters, and comedy clubs come to life. Don't forget to take a few minutes to watch the sea lions at Pier 39, their are adorable and a real treat.
If looking for a place to eat/play/explore, this area will be it. You can walk from one pier onto the next. It's quite a walk, but the area, wind, and view is worth it. If you don't feel like walking, then get a lift from the bicyclist. You will definitely find a few restaurants on the way, also shops to shop. Cannot go wrong there. Make sure to charge your phone and prepare to snap pictures of great food and great view.
The wharf had such a cool vibe to it. There was so many restaurants to eat at and so many shops to look at that you could seriously spend a whole day or two looking around at all there is to see. The weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was really something special. Definitely something that everyone should experience at some point in their life. I can't wait until I can go back to San Francisco again.
