“Great Walk And Cool Spot for Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

This a great place to walk along the water and see a lot of the city, particularly near/at the Ferry Building where there are several restaurants.

“Lots of shopping and site seeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

There were some lovely shops here to explore as well as some great vantage points of the city despite it being somewhat commercialized. Spend a couple of hours looking around and pick up some fresh bread or try some local seafood and stroll the waterside. Excellent people watching.

“Nice place to hang out”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

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