Fisherman's Wharf (San Francisco, USA) Reviews
Newest Review: ... stretch of bay with the attractions pretty much along the same road. Things to do: Where to begin?! There's a wide range of attractions to keep you entertained and interested, a few choice ones I enjoyed are: 1) Hyde Street Pier - A large collection of historic ships, some of which you are able to board. There's always something going on like demonstrations or shows of some kind. 2) Sea Lions - Not caged, or tanked, these hundreds of animals come from all around the bay area itself to hang out on the platformed areas off Pier 39. Watch them playing, eating, or just having a snooze. 3) Pier 39 - Probably the most touristy part, quite a ... more

Fisherman's Wharf is a little bit of bustle in an otherwise laid-back city. Even though it has some modern-day tourist traps, the history and authenticity is still very very much in abundance, which makes it such a magical place to spend time.

Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco is a must see sightseeing spot for anyone finding themselves in San Francisco for a couple of days - but beware the Bushman who lurks not far away!
