This famous name became reality to me quite recently. The views are nice but somehow it did not meet my expectations. Perhaps I had imagined something different from what I found: lots of small food stores, most of them closed at around 11 am. Had...More

When touring you have to do touristy things and a walk along this pier fits that bill perfectly. Plenty of eateries, souvenir shops and photo opportunities; I photographed Father Christmas outside the Christmas Shop at the beginning of October! The ever-present sea lions will keep...More

We spent the day walking from pier to pier. It was a beautiful day LOTS to do! Great places to eat, street entertainment, museums, cable cars, seafood, ferry rides, shopping!

We wandered up and down the wharf a couple of times, checking different stores (of course). Nothing stood out really, it wa just fun.

This pier has a good atmosphere and lots of restaurants etc well worth visiting. There is an excellent view of Alcatraz from here and trips are easy to book for the prison.

If you love shopping and good food you need to visit the Warf! Tons of shops with cool souvenirs. Make sure to check out the street food venders selling FRESH seafood and cold drinks. You can also get tickets to ride the trolleys and sign...More

There are many things to do and a lot of places to eat. It was a little too crowded for me to stay very long.

Ok, for sure this is a tourist place, but so much to do and fun people to be around. Ghiradelli has an outlet there so be sure to sample their great chocolate fare. Some good places to grab a quick snack.

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.

I think the city pass is a combination of public transit (bus) and cable car. Might be worth a couple days, but most things are walking, biking distance
