San Francisco, CA 94133
As one of San Francisco's most popular attractions, Fisherman's Wharf serves as a hub for tourists and is quintessentially San Francisco with its myriad of souvenir shops, seafood restaurants, piers, and premiere waterfront address. Besides offering its visitors unparalleled views of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge, and city, the Wharf is also conveniently located near many popular attractions and is on the cable car line. The Wharf area stretches from Pier 39 on the east end to the Municipal Pier on the west end, all along the Embarcadero. The Wharf is home to many of the city's most popular attractions such as the Aquarium of the Bay, the San Francisco Maritime Historic Park, the Cannery shopping area, and Ghirardelli Square among many more. Visitors can even meet some of the bay's sea life by heading over to Peir 39's West Marina where a slew of sea lions hang out on a cluster of docks. To find the entertaining sea lions, just listen for their rowdy barking. Pier 39 is also home to the California Welcome Center, which serves as a great resource for travelers with maps and information on Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, and even the entire state of California. Visit the Wharf's website for a printable walking tour featuring all the popular sites.
