    Don't eat before you get here. There's tons of great restaurants and food stands to try. Even fresh sun-ripened organic fruit with yummy dips!

    New Year's was not the same at this place; was disappointed with the lack of things to do without a ticket. BUT it is great to visit during the day to buy and try things!

    Don't miss the famous sea lions on Pier 39. They left for a while and came back - so who knows how long they will stay. See them while you can.

    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.

    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.

    Pier 39 is located on the northernmost point of San Francisco’s peninsula. From the pier, you can see Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, San Francisco Bay, and the city skyline.
