Around what time in the evening will most of the tourist shops start closing along the Wharf in April? Will most shops have later spring hours? I know the Musee closes at 7:00 during the week, what about the majority of other shops? Assuming restaurants (but not interested in any) will most likely remain open later.
I've read several posts saying it gets boring along the Wharf at night. Why? Is it only because the shops will be closed? Those comments sound strange...but I've never been there.
If we were to arrive at the FTerminal around 4pm (checking into USquare hotel about 3pm), would that not leave enough time to casually walk down (or is it up?) the Embarcadero and in and out of a few Wharf area shops (for browsing purposes) before closing time?
Will Ghirardelli Sq be open later so that maybe we should visit this last? I'm just trying to plan our first evening in SF with 2 teens in tow.
We'll be doing an Alcatraz tour another evening but we have other plans earlier on that day.
Just curious about my questions and the best use of our time for our first late afternoon/evening in SF.
