You will not find a shortage of places to eat or gift shops to visit here at Fisherman's Wharf. It essentially has it all. My family of 4 visited a couple of times while vacationing in June and always found something interesting to see and do. I don't typically enjoy tourist traps but this had enough bells and whistles to... More

There are a lot of interesting shops down by the pier that I have not seen anywhere else. It was a lot of fun. There are also a lot of seafood vendors that were very good. The temperature in November was in the sixties but it was a lot colder down by the pier so be sure to have a... More

Travelling through the US. Stopped here and just relaxed for the morning. Had some great breakfast at the wipeout café. Just strolled around, taking it all in, the trams, the buzz, the pier. What a place! San Fran has a terrible problem with homeless though.

Although the sea lions are away during this time, there are many activities you can still do here. Shop, bike ride, bay tours, fruit markets, restaurants...stalk up on sea food.

The Wharf is a great spot to walk around and people watch! We had a blast just walking around. There are some good looking gift shops, great restaurants and lots of good people having fun. Our weather was perfect which made our experience all the more enjoyable. Fishing charters and scenic cruises leave from this area. Next time, we will... More

Fishermans Wharf area is just full of restaurants and individual entrepreneurial enterprises, waiting to entertain you. I did a Segway tour from here and all through the waterfront, had many delicious meals here, walked for miles through little shops and stores. This is hands down San Franciscos finest jewel. Lots to do

So beautiful! So much to do and see. You could actually be busy for days just going from pier to pier and seeing alcatraz, trying all the wonderful restaurants and sampling the delicious chowder in bread bowls. Birds sailing everywhere....ships.....seals dancing and flopping about! What a wonderful place to take your family or spend a romantic time. You will be... More

Great for Kids. The street performers were a lot of fun. My son loved watching. Also went to The Dungeon of San Fran. Very expensive and okay. Not really what was expected. Lots of places to buy candy and junk of all kinds. Again - Kids love this place.

I love this place. You can taste all sorts of things from the sea and the gift shops are really great. I don't remember anything made in China or Mexico. Lots of tourists though so I'd go during school.
