You will meet all kinds of folk here! Tourists flock to the area. It would be a shame not to visit, but go during the day. It seemed a bit sketchy at night and we were unsure whether or not to walk back to our...More

Take a picture in front of the sign here, then walk down to Pier 39! Such a neat area just to walk around and explore!

This place is just a tourist trap. It's very crowded and everything is overpriced. Not worth to waste your time there.

Cant miss Fisherman's Wharf when in San Francisco. There is so much to see and do. Restaurants, street food, as well as shopping. So make sure you go. Also take the camera to capture those eventful opportunities.

If you go to San Francisco, this is a must-see. Lots of fun thing to do and see, a largy number of restaurant from where tot choose, a ton of souvenir shops and if you are lucky you can see dozens of seals.

Kind of funky - there is usually music on the corner - which was pretty good. I think the city could clean up the significant amount of litter and perhaps invest in some cosmetic, curbside improvements.

Enjoyed walking along this wharf. The transportation was easy to access but is best viewed by walking.too many stores have the same souvenirs though.

Fisherman's wharf has lots of tourist activities, tour starting points, and bay cruises. It's also pretty full of homeless and scary people, also drunks, inappropriate tshirt shops, and junk stores. I would recommend staying somewhere else and taking half a day to walk around the...More

Any trip to San Fran has to include here. Lots of shops and seafood and fun for the kids. Seals on the wharf behind, a few buskers, a few rides, and lots to see.

I believe its Pier 39 near the boats for Alcatraz. There's some rides and shops and if you walk behind the stores along the water, you will catch the seals basking on some wood floats.
