Any time someone brings up Fisherman's Wharf, every single San Franciscan lets out a groan. Sure, they'll confess, they go there every once in a while for In-N-Out, but other than that, they think it's a total tourist trap, a waste of time, and one of the worst things about SF. Well, sorry, but I'm here to tell all of San Francisco that when it comes to your snobby thoughts about Fisherman's Wharf, you're totally and utterly wrong.

Sure, nostalgia plays a part in my love of Fisherman's Wharf (I used to spend hours upon hours there as a kid, watching street performers, raiding toy/candy stores, or winning tickets at the arcade that used to be where Hard Rock Cafe is), but the truth is, even as an adult, there's super-cool stuff to eat, drink, and do there. So yeah, I think Fisherman's Wharf is totally underrated. Not convinced? Here are 11 reasons why it's definitely The Best.

With more than 30 locations across the state, Boudin Bakery is a California classic for sandwiches, soup, salad and of course fresh-baked sourdough. Founded in San Francisco in 1849, Burgundian master baker Isidore Boudin sought to combine French breadmaking techniques with the sourdough popular among Californian gold miners. To this day, every single loaf of sourdough produced by Boudin uses the original yeast-bacteria culture, maintained through the centuries for a distinctive, instantly-recognizable taste.

What better way to celebrate more than 165 years of San Francisco sourdough tradition with a meeting at Bistro Boudin, the bakery’s flagship facility? The 26,000-square-foot facility has a café, museum and a fine-dining restaurant with stunning views of Alcatraz, Angel Island and the rest of the scenic San Francisco Bay. The main dining room seats up to 270 for dinner and 400 for cocktail receptions.

By a, Reporter- San Francisco Business Times
 

A new study commissioned by San Francisco finds that extending the $1.59 billion Central Subway to Fisherman's Wharf would draw thousands of new riders. Construction is underway on the Central Subway's 1.7 mile route, which is now slated to go from the Caltrain station at Fourth and King Streets to Chinatown and open in 2019. The proposed extension project would construct a North Beach station and extend the tracks to one or two stations at Fisherman's Wharf. The study is the first analysis of what it would mean to connect the rail line to those two neighborhoods, which are among San Francisco's most tourist-heavy. Read the full story here: http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/blog/2014/12/sf-central-subway-study-to-fishermans-wharf.html?page=all

When Lacresha Whitfield brought her daughters to Pier 39 last year to write letters to Santa as part of a more-than-century-old U.S. Postal Service holiday campaign, she never expected that their wishes would come true.

Recalling how the San Francisco family received anonymous gifts in the mail that were exactly what the girls had asked for -- a Monster High doll for Mackenzie, now 8, and puzzles and blocks for Madison, now 2 -- Whitfield said they decided they had to come back this year for another dose of Christmas magic.

Fall’s annual crab frenzy is upon us — like the Beaujoulais Nouveau release, only much, much better.
