We expected this to be very touristy and this proved to be the case. This isn't meant to be a negative; the Wharf and the adjacent waterfront area have to be on your list of “must visits” if in San Francisco. Good to wander around, visit some of the historic ships moored at the various piers and there are plenty of places to eat. There are a large number of hotels in the area and the temptation is to stay here for your San Francisco visit. However, the area is limited on things to do and we would recommend staying around Union Square and travelling to the Wharf by cable car or bus. If you are up to it it is also a pleasant walk from Union Square, but be aware of the hills!
