Neighborhood: Fisherman's Wharf
Overview

Fisherman's Wharf remains one of San Francisco's most popular tourist destinations. The Wharf consists of a long, coast side row of seafood restaurants, street vendors, souvenir stores, and beautiful ocean scenery. Fisherman's Wharf was originally a major fishing pier, and although the fishing industry is still alive today, the main focus of this specific coastal area is its historic tourist attractions. Parking is limited on the Wharf itself so parking downtown or taking a cable car to the Wharf is recommended. Ferry rides are offered for those who would like to visit Marin County. There are numerous attractions and great places to eat (see the other entries for Tourist Attractions and Fisherman Wharf restaurants). Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers, even during summer months, as the breeze off the ocean can be quite chilling. And take your camera - the photo opportunities are fabulous.

  My family LOVES to stop at the stand in front of the restaurants and have their crab while standing up out there. It's one of our first stops every year. I rather not deal with peeling crab meat out of the shell unless at home so I either have a bowl of chowder or shucked oysters. It's all about the atmosphere! In regards to the sit down restaurants there, the only one that my family and I have actually enjoyed was upstairs at Boudin's. We went there for the first time last year. If you have small children traveling with you go to see the Sea Lions lounging on their docks. It can get very chilly there. You may want to go upstairs and have a cup of hot chocolate and continue watching the Sea Lions....   Read More
