Lots to see and do here. All the boat cruises leave from one of the piers so make sure you know your pier number! Lots of great restaurants, shops, live entertainment. See the live crabs. You can catch the cable cars from here too.

If you want a whole day of just checking out San Fran’s famous dishes, you have to visit the Whatf. Such a vibrant, not too busy and relaxing place to visit.

Just walking up and down this beautiful area is a rich experience, seeing all the people and their variety, as well as the many activities and range of dress makes it all worthwhile. Of course, Boudin's San Francisco sourdough bakery is the highlight for me.
