    Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco is a must see as a tourist. Enjoy a clam chowder bowl in a sour dough and dont let the birds steal it! The price for a clam chowder bowl And a beer is about $10 which is quite reasonable for San Fran.

    I love spending the day on the Wharf. Cute shops, lots of food, fresh fish, and the people watching is spectacular! Make sure to wear your walking shoes. You can pick up all of your souvenirs here!

    Fun to watch the Sea Lions on Pier 39; you can cater a boat that tours you underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz which is fun, otherwise it is a very loud, crowded touristy place.

    Fisherman's Wharf is a great place to experience. You can find tons of yummy food here, and it's pretty day or night. Lots to do.

    Fun, famous and lively! Must try some of the seafood when you're down there. So much fresh seafood and chowder options to choose from.

    One of the best days of my childhood was spent walking from the Presidio to Fisherman's Wharf with my mom. I was about seven and I recall the expansiveness of Crissy Field, the hills of Fort Mason and the piers of Aquatic Park. I recall telling my mom that I could swim to Alcatraz if I wanted to. I could do it.

    The end destination of Fisherman's Wharf was always of huge appeal to me. With the colorful souvenir stores and the bustle of visiting tourists, it was a veritable feast for the senses. I found a miniature figurine of a computer that transformed into a phone—not a real one as cell phones were about the size of bricks at the time—that would have me wanting to return for months later in hopes that I could acquire such technology.

    Extremely touristy, yes, but still fun to visit. I always have a good time watching the street performers and having the obligatory clam chowder.
