After seeing Pier 39 just walk down the street to Fishermans Wharf and be sure to check out the local stores and restaurants. While at the Wharf be sure to take a cruise of the Bay it certainly will be worth it.

I recommend a visit to all who are planning a trip to San Francisco! Do not miss having the clam chowder ;-) My suggestion : it is not a good place for shopping as things are over priced. Enjoy the seals and the sea gulls!

Turist heavy area with according prices. Definetly worth a walk through, but eating elsewhere is probably a good idea if you arenot into packed places.

If you've ever been to a small beach town in CA then this is what it will remind you of. It's got some great shops near by and its a relaxing break from the big city noise.

What a fantastic place. So much going on and lots to see. Shops,restaurants souvenir shops. The sea lions basking on the pier is certainly something to see. Had fun sitting watching the world go by.

Go ahead and get a sourdough bowl full of chowder, shellfish or snack. It is a spot that is touristy, but for a reason. I don't do a lot of shopping or eating here, but it makes a trip feel like you were in a unique part of the workd. Look down for markers for the Barbary Coast trek.

Me and my family visit San Francisco once or twice a year and have for more than fifty years. And on every trip to the City, Fishermans Wharf is a must see and do. The bay, the boats, the smell of the sea, plus all the other sights and sensations of this area reflect my thoughts of what a San... More

We took a girls trip to San Francisco and agreed that Fisherman's Wharf was our favorite part of the trip. We had visited this location at least once every day that we were there. Great shopping, attractions and the Eagle Restaurant has fantastic crab!

This was the first time I really got to spend some time in San Fran and get a feel for the city. I loved Fisherman's Wharf, especially since the weather was fantastic when I had visited. You are able to walk around and go in to different and unique stores such as a crazy socks store. Also, being that my... More
