Reviews of Fisherman's Wharf • 4
This is a nice neighborhood along the waterfront and a good place to spend the evening. Dotted with nice and fancy restaurants, you can decide to splurge a bit and go to places like Gary Denko or Eight AM, where for $90 you can get a 3 course meal. You can get a nice room at The Mosser for $90 for the night.
Pier 39 is a shopping center and popular tourist attraction built on a pier in San Francisco. At Pier 39, there were shops, restaurants, street performances, the Aquarium of the Bay, virtual 3D rides, and views of California sea lions hauled out on docks on Pier 39's marina. Fisherman's Wharf is the best place for families and kids.From the pier one can see Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay Bridge.
It is one of the busiest and well known tourist attraction in the western U.S. where seafood restaurants are available in plenty.
Once I reached the much talked about Fisherman's Wharf, it was difficult for me to decide where to start exploring the hidden experiences of the City of Bay. Truly called a tourist spot, one day seemed just too short a period of time. From the extraordinary view of sea lions at Pier 39, to the world famous statues at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, were the kind of sights I got to see. While the food was mouthwatering, I couldn't resist from choosing my favourites in the world fmaous clam chowder, fried fish and the well-known San Francisco sour dough. And this was just the beginning of my tour at Fisherman's Wharf. Later came the international hotspot Musee Mechanique, 1980's arcade games and Ghirardelli Square.
