Nice place to go. Terrific view of the ocean, nice walk and restaurant and bar to eat on the border or just relax and enjoy. Few little stores inside the building help to spend great time.

This spot was under remodel the last time I was in San Francisco. It was great to see what they did with it. Lots of cool spots to eat, great wine and awesome bars. Plus a beautiful view of the Bay Bridge

The Ferry Building in San Francisco provides an amazing array of dining and shopping opportunities. Be sure to visit the independent bookstore and sample homemade empanadas at one of the shops. Surgery la Table provides all the gourmet accoutrements you need for the holidays!

I recommend you park & walk or take the cable car for ease to Ferry Building. Trying to park close will be hectic & expensive.
