Lots to see and do in this location along the harbour area. If you come to San Francisco then you will end up at the Fisherman's Wharf location.

From the moment you arrive at Fisherman's Wharf you can sense the buzz. Plenty of diners and bars. It can be quite congested in places, just make sure you keep on the pavement as there is plenty of traffic around.

Cool place to visit but like most of San Francisco it is expensive, look for deals and check prices. Some good restaurants to try.

Fisherman's Wharf has numerous food options, along with souvenir shops. The views of the bay, though, are really nice. It's a great view of Alcatraz. Plus the sea lions on the dock - very cool.

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.
