This place is dirtier than I remembered it, but not to the extent that you'd want to stay away. There are so many tourists that you just have to expect it. The upside to that is that it makes for good people watching. And we...More

This is fun to do and have done. A lot of people everywhere, nice area but also a real tourist trap but a must if in SF

Fishermans Wharf was as cool and interesting as I had heard from my friends! Many different restaurants, shops, museums, and piers to visit! I would recommend checking out Pier 39 for all the old arcade games and Pier 42 for dining and saltwater taffy!

We visited looking for a place to eat dinner. I have difficulty walking or we might have enjoyed it more. We visited a candy shop and looked around a bit, ate at in-and-out and headed back to the hotel. We probably would have enjoyed it...More

Loads of people, mostly not from United States here. The seagulls are HUGE and sometimes feel like they are going to attack you while you eat. You have to get the chowder in a bread bowl. It really fills you up on a 56 deg...More

We stayed in San Francisco for four nights and often ventured down to Fisherman's Wharf for food and drink and other activities. I had clam chowder for the first time and it was gorgeous. Really good relaxing atmosphere walking around.

A relative tourist trap, but on the list if you're a tourist. If you don't like crazy crowds, I would avoid weekends. Week days are still busy but nothing compared to the chaos of Saturday's and Sundays. If you head just to the outskirts of...More

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.
