I have a big, BIG space in my heart for the Wharf. I get why it is seen as so “tourist-y”… because it is. But there is also so much more to it. So much that people overlook. SO MUCH FUN TO BE HAD. No, I’m not kidding. You are doing yourself a disservice if you live in SF and haven’t treated yourself to a day at the actual bay.

Does Fisherman’s Wharf may make you think of lollygagging tourists, street performers, and chain restaurants?

What you may not realize though is that it also has tons of great things that make it worth a visit for even the most jaded of locals.
