Tonnes of restaurants, shops and people everywhere! Live music on the street, fresh seafood being cooked at many locations, many people doing the same thing as you!

So many things for the eyes to take in! Lombard Street for the first time, and I didn’t scream all the way down (😏), street cars, fishermen’s crab traps, and the Wharf! Have a wonderful day. Take your time! See it all!! ✌️

Right next to Pier 39 it all kinda runs together through here. There is a lot to see, drink and eat all through here.
