San Francisco Attractions Fisherman's Wharf
— Popular Tourist Destination
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!
