After hearing all the hype about Fisherman Wharf we had to visit there after our Alcatraz Trip....All I can say is that it is something you can miss....It's a area full of T-Shirt and Souvenir shops and mediocre sea food restaurants....

Fisherman's Wharf is the tourist magnet of San Francisco. Most local honestly avoid it unless they are showing guests San Francisco. Be that as it may, The Wharf has some very interesting sites to see. The area is lined with restaurants mostly specializing in Seafood....More

This is a tourist area for sure but it has decent food choices and the people watching is good. Some of the shops are decent as well if you are looking for small gifts to take back or remember your trip.

Walked about the Wharf a few times when in San Fran. Plenty to see and do from floating museums to loud seals around the corner and great places to eat and just sit and watch the world go by

Going to San Francisco then to Yosemite with an 8 year old. Hoping off the plane and hurrying to boat for Alcatraz. After that we have a little time to play in San Fransisco. What are three MUST see things (remember I'll be traveling with an 8 year old)??? Help!

I believe its Pier 39 near the boats for Alcatraz. There's some rides and shops and if you walk behind the stores along the water, you will catch the seals basking on some wood floats.

What is the city pass and is it worth getting?
