    A must-see when in San Francisco! Spend the afternoon outdoors soaking in the beautiful scenery and top the day off with a bowl of clam chowder at Boudin's!

    I could never get tired of this place. I always start at the Embarcadero and walk through the piers, great exercise and nice scenery. Many dining places to choose from as well as sight see.

    Stay AWAY from Fisherman's Wharf. It's simply a tourist trap with overpriced food and lame souvenirs. If you want to experience actual San Franciscan life go to the city.

    Go and see the sea lions as the end of the pier! Dont rider the carousel - its too expensive, Take the kids to golden gate park and ride it there - way cheaper.

    Yeah, its a tourist trap, but its my kind of trap! Still love the pier, nice shops, lots of chocolate. 3D Rides are always fun, and its fairly safe even at night.
