Lots of panhandlers and "junk" tourist shops that give the area a seedy feel. Interspersed in the "junk" are a few quality places to see. And kids would enjoy Pier 39 along with the Ripleys Mirror Maze and a wax museum. Live musicians play thoughout the day, creating a fun sound. Fun place to stay, but nice to escape to other areas of the city to see the sights.
