San Francisco Attractions

Fisherman's Wharf
— Popular Tourist Destination

 

Fisherman's Wharf
We love visiting Fisherman's Wharf — it's such a FUN place to hang-out, people-watch and play tourist for the day. Stroll along the historic waterfront area and enjoy the unique "tastes" of San Francisco — street vendors sell "portions-to-go" of fresh Dungeness Crab (watch video below to see how they crack the crab), Shrimp Cocktails, Fried Calamari, and other delicious seafood delicacies. Be prepared for crowds, especially during peak tourist season — it's one of San Francisco's most popular attractions.



Fisherman's Wharf is also famous for its Italian seafood restaurants, fishing fleet, street performers (keep a lookout for Bushman), pedicabs, bay cruise ferries, specialty shops, live entertainment, and great people-watching!

"Hop-on Hop-off" Bus Tours
See the sights of San Francisco — hop on and off as many times as you like! The fully-narrated tour lasts around 75 minutes if you stay on the bus for the full loop. The tour covers all of central San Francisco — Fisherman's Wharf, Ferry Building, Union Square, Chinatown, North Beach, Lombard Street... and more!

Fisherman's Wharf
Lighted Boat Holiday Parade

Enjoy the oldest and largest Lighted Boat Holiday Parade on San Francisco Bay. See 75+ fishing boats and yachts decked out with festive holiday lights and decorations as they travel from Pier 39 to the St. Francis Yacht Club as part of the annual Fisherman's Wharf Holiday Parade — the fun event has taken place since December 1994. Best viewing site for the parade is along the SF waterfront.

Lighted Fishing Boats & Yachts
After the annual Holiday Parade, Fisherman's Wharf boats will stay lit until early January. Best viewing site for the nightly display is on Jefferson Street between Jones and Taylor streets at the Sportfishing Harbor.


Boudin @ Fisherman's Wharf
Don't miss a visit to Boudin's — famous for its Sourdough Bread filled with Clam Chowder — a delicious San Francisco treat.

The Cannery and Anchorage Square shopping and dining complexes feature a variety of restaurants, shops, street performers, seasonal events and live entertainment.

Check out Pier 39 (and its world-famous Sea Lions) and Ghirardelli Square — two of San Francisco's most popular destinations —are both located within easy walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf. The Aquatic Park and Beach area is located in front of Ghirardelli Square along the waterfront. This is a wonderful area to bring a picnic lunch, rest your feet and people-watch.
