When you visit San Francisco and you go down to the wharf, expect two things; lots of tourists, and chilly weather. Both all good. Make sure to get fresh lobster and or those giant dungeonous crabs.

Brash attempt at a shopping mall with a waterfront style. Interesting the walk around and some good bargains. San Franciscans are a friendly lot and there is some tasty seafood on offer here

No visit to San Francisco is complete without a visit to the fisherman’s wharf. This is regardless of whether you have been before or not. It was a cool and blowy day and We enjoyed a lovely hot bowl of spicy clam chowder.

A visit is essential if visiting San Francisco particularly if for the first time. But remember it is a tourist Mecca and comes with all the trappings and traps. It attracts people very keen for you to part with your money.

The place we chose to eat was nothing to write home about. Other than a few shops and restaurants, this was a big disappointment considering I expected a nicer and higher quality place given all the hoopla about it.
