We were determined to get here. It took us two tries. One evening was just to chilly to walk so much at the waterfront. I have been here before it is nice to say you went but not much different there than in a store on Union Square except for the ice cream shop!

We were suggested Ghirardelli by our brother, who is settled in Bay area for long. After visiting Golden Gate Bridge, we went to Ghirardelli square. They have the most yummy ice creams and chocolates. You can have them there and there are also gift packs of various chocolates, which can be bought there. The place is popular and hence crowded...

This is a fun little stop, but expensive and don't expect much. Just a couple of shops and an ice cream shop that sells chocolate. The same chocolate you can get in the grocery store, but it is fun to say you got it at Ghirardelli Square.

This is a nice little square in front of the ice cream and chocolate place. There is some seating and a bathroom. The ice cream place is great. This is also nice.

We enjoyed the walk through the shops. The location on the bay is great. Prices for chocolate and in the shops adjoing are steep, even for tourist locations. If you want a nice stroll and a chocolate treat you have what you are looking for. If you are looking to shop, keep looking.

Not sure what we were expecting, but the girls wanted to walk over to Ghiradelli Square from Fisherman's Wharf on our trek up the hill to Lombard Street. Some neat architecture, but really just a few shops and offices. If your wondering what to cross off your list, I'd suggest this.

We had a fantastic ice cream sundae at the famous Ghiradelli Square. It was absolutely scrumptious.... but very pricey and very calorific! It was worth the calories though for one time! The place was jam packed full of people.
