“Nice place to hang out”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Located near the San Francisco Bay, the Embarcadero is a road lined with shops. They weren't necessarily the best shops, but there were restaurants and souvenir shops. There were many ports on one side and you could stand and see Alcatraz. Not very hard to find parking.

“Embarcadero”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A place near the San Francisco port.
From there you can see both bridges, besides you have the train station, the cable cars and buses.
You even have shopping stores inside the Ferry Building.
The Ferry Building is a massive building (of course) that includes all the piers and docks and ports.
It's amazing to ride on the surrounds.

“Robbed at Baseball”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This ruined our trip to SF. This area is unsafe and is dangerously exposed, suggest families stay away.

“Great for walk, run, stroll, peoplewatching”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Stopped here twice. Once enjoyed a light meal at the Ferry Terminal Marketplace. The other time walked a few miles while my companion ran along the water. Lots of attractive buildings, sculpture, interesting people watching, interesting shopping, and farmer's market several days a week.

Reviewed 15 July 2014

A great way to people watch while enjoying the Californian sun. There are also various bits of public art to enjoy
