You could spend all day here!!! I chose to to watch the sea lions, & walk thru their education centre, visit a lot of the shops, watch the street performers, eat at Bubba Gump's. Very enjoyable walk, some stairs required for some attractions. Good view of the harbour front.

We had a nice visit to Pier 39. It had many attractions, shops, and restaurants within walking distance of each other.

Parking was expensive at $12/hr but we only stayed a few hrs.

It is full of shops and also restaurants. It’s a bit far if you walk from downtown but if you enjoy walking, like I do... then go for it
There is a sea lions area, funny and amazing animals!

It has almost a carnival feel to it. Walking around there are stores and cart vendors selling everything from left handed scissors to delicious crepes. It’s fun to see and there are some yummy treats to get toi

Lots of interesting shops and restaurants, especially Fog Harbour which is upstairs at the front the pier. There's a lot of things to see and we arrived during an acrobatic show. Good views of Alcatraz

We were observing the sea lions that are grouped in the dock 39, as well as the large number of birds that make this place their home, lots of people taking pictures and enjoying ice cream and drinks,a good place to spend a relaxed afternoon
