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

Pier 39 is a vibrant tourist attraction. There are of restaurants and gift shops. I had some Clam chowder in a bowl at Boudins which was quite nice. There were also some nice views of Alcatraz island, and of course you could see the sea lions which was the highlight of my visit to Pier 39. When I went, they were all sunbathing - Super cute!

The pier’s best feature is undoubtedly the antique penny arcade
Many machines are pre WW2 but are kept in full working order and have been converted to take present day quarter coins
You could wile away hours in this old amusement arcade
The rest of the pier is awash with fast food outlets where the service is very slow, food quality poor and the prices atrocious
