So many options here - you can enjoy Boudin bread (or their restaurant), all manner of sea food - as well as many shops and activities. I always try to visit the wharf when in town

This is the one-stop place for visitors to San Francisco, it has everything from attractions, shops, plus a selection of restaurants and bars. It can be crowded but the tourist visitor numbers generate a great atmosphere. Worth at least one visit.

I walked all along the water from Pier 39 to Ghirardelli Square. Lots of shops, restaurants, and views. Very touristy. Lots of people. Fresh seafood. Fun to walk around.

This attraction was the least of my favorites during our vacation. Seemed dirty like an old rundown attraction. Was not impressed.

Fun interesting way to spend a day in San Francisco. Pier 39 sea lions a must. Mr Magowans mirrors maze fun and great entertainment for little cost. Musee Mechanique takes you back many years to amusement machines which don't involve a laptop or phone !...More

We enjoyed our time on Fisherman's Wharf. Although it is a bit of a tourist trap, we enjoyed it. We especially like the sea lions, the street performers, the souvenir shops, and the Musee Mechanique.
