We took the ferry from Saulsilito and ended up here on our return. We are at Gotts Roadside right as you exit Marketplace.

Nice place to go for a walk, shops and restaurants although I didn't see a lot of info on the history of the buildings. But very pretty and the pier is well maintained and clean

Loads of places to eat and there is an excellent bookshop called the book passage. Outside there is a trolley bus stop which will take you all along the seafront.

Ferry building marketplace is near Fishermen Wharf. We took the ferry from Marine County to the city in half an hour. Coffee shops, restaurants and gift shops are plenty.

We are returning to Pier 27 San Francisco at the end of a cruise and our flight isn't until late afternoon. Does anyone know if we can leave our luggage anywhere and suggest something to do before going to the airport?
