This is Disneyland by the sea. If you like that kind of thing: good. If you don't care for things like that, just stay away. There are better things to do in San Francisco

I’d been to Fisherman’s Wharf before and didn’t need to go back, but my boyfriend insisted if only to have bowl of clam chowder in a bread bowl. Not too crowded so just soaked in the setting on a lovely, warm clear September day.

This former great seafood venue has become so tacky that I very much regret to advise you not to go! Junckies on every street corner, poor busking, kiss me quick hats....yuch!

Fun to look at the sea lions and many restaurants to choose from. However, the ferry landing has stores too and is less touristy. No sea lions, unfortunately.
