Pier 39 is a must visit. There are shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, entertainment and more from 8am until midnight at least. There are also seals, hundreds of them, hauling out onto pontoons at the side of the pier. They alone are worth a visit to what the fun they are having with each other.

Pier 39 is definitely one of the places you have to visit while in San Francisco.
I liked it a lot and I recommend it to visit also on your own, it’s safe and easy to enjoy.

There are some great bars on the pier and it is kept immaculately clean and tidy.

With 2 storeys of entertainment and food venues including a carousel it’s a must see part of SF!

If you walk to the end you can hear the sea lions barking at night.

Very nice area with lots of shops and food places close by. A must to watch the Sea Lions on the wood floating piers.

The highlight is probably to watch the sea lions - very cute! Otherwise, very tourist place, shops and restaurants were higher priced.

Even though it’s a bit of a tourist trap area the restaurants and cafe are still pretty good and not overly priced. A must is to see the sea lions!

Visited and were not really sure what to expect but it was a great shopping place and some amazing and different shops there. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would go again. Some good food outlets too. It was lovely to see the seals too albeit a bit smelly!

Loved watching the sea lions but the rumours about the unpleasant smell are true, especially on a sunny day. Still worth going there, just hold your nose until you get used to it!
