“Views, ambiance and atmosphere are three of the top things visitors cite as being the reasons they love coming to Fisherman’s Wharf. Our tag line is ‘something for everybody’ as that is quite literally true. Museums, historic ships, a National Park Visitor Center, sea lions, attractions, boat cruises, PIER 39, Ghirardelli Square, numerous restaurants, art galleries, and a budding nightlife scene means that anybody can find something to do here that is of interest to them.
Beat the crowds and spend the morning in Fisherman’s Wharf! Sea lions, street performers, arcade games and crab for breakfast – all before your kid’s nap time!
Going to the Fisherman’s Wharf in the morning is the best – the Fisherman’s Wharf gets pretty crowded any day of the week, every season – but not so much at 9am! (The big crowds tend to come around after 11am.) There is plenty to do here in the early mornings before the crowd comes out. The morning is the best time to explore this amazingly touristy Fisherman’s Wharf. We did all of this in one morning – all before a big family nap.
If you haven’t visited San Francisco’s Fishermans Wharf in many years or at best you have been an infrequent visitor; you are missing out on some exciting changes to this popular destination. During my recent media trip to Fishermans Wharf, I was amazed by how much things have changed in the past 15 years (yes 15 years) since I last visited.
If you live in San Francisco, it’s the city everyone wants to visit. The first place visitors want to go see is Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghiradelli Square. We all have our list of the best things to see and do in San Francisco, but everyone wants to know where the locals go. The Mission is a great place to hang out, eat Mexican food and see some cool murals and Golden Gate Park or the Castro are not to be missed, but if you want to visit Alcatraz or listen to the sea lions while eating fresh Dungeness crab, you’ll want to visit the places in Fisherman’s Wharf where the locals go.
