    You may wanna go see it if you're a tourist. Beyond being a tourist attraction, wharf offers great seafood restaurants options, along with other chains such as boudin, chipotle, in-an-out burger etc.

    Fans of the traditional English seaside pier will feel right at home here: touristy but fun. Make sure to visit the pier head for great views of the bay and Alcatraz.

    Must have gone during a high tourist season because I found the dramatic view of Fisherman's Wharf from the Golden Gate Bridge much preferable to actually visiting that area. Boudins is great though!

    parking's a little pricey by my standards (20$) but its all day. the place to be would be pier 39. if youre planning to save $$, there are take out counters which have tables and seats.

    One of my favorite places. Pier 39 is great but a lot of other great restaurants & sights as well. Parking is almost impossible to find on weekends and holidays.

    Fisherman's Wharf gets its name from the Gold Rush. Our Michelin footwear, with its tire traction on the sole, will keep you grounded and slip-free in case you find any slippery spots along your way!

    I'm not fan of these tourist traps but the sea lions were worth the visit. Spent 15 minutes watching two alpha males duel for a spot on the floating dock. Great entertainment!

    Remember in Jurassic Park II: The Lost World where the raptors sneak attack their prey by one distracting while the other goes for the kill? The seagulls do this here. Protect your food.

    Touristy place but worth a visit not on a windy day. Good for chowders, seafood, views, sea lions, restaurants and shopping. Parking is very expensive.
