Wide variety of shops and restaurants. Really like the bookstore. When warm enough, grab something to drink from one place, cheese, bread from others and sit on a bench on the east side and watch the comings and goings.

You MUST visit the Ferry Building! Situated on San Francisco Bay, the building is a great place to find delicious and unique food and wine, beautiful crafts and other goods, and all with a magnificent view of the the Bay Bridge and other Bay landmarks.

This place has some unique stores and food inside. But what I really liked was the farmers market on Saturdays. The fruit was so good and they also sold some fantastic jams. I would love to go again.

My wife and I walked here from the Cruise terminal, an easy 3/4 mile. We were quite frankly prepared for something more grandiose having read tour guides and TripAdvisor. The facility itself isn't really unique or outstanding. It did have several restaurants with quite a...More

Lots of opportunities for souvenir shopping and tasty treats. Personally, I recommend forgoing the sitdown places and instead buy a takeout something and go sit on the rear deck to enjoy the great views of the bay. Also, if you can get there early on...More

I recommend you park & walk or take the cable car for ease to Ferry Building. Trying to park close will be hectic & expensive.
