With over 12 million visitors each year, Fisherman’s Wharf is an area of SF not to skip. When you’re here, there’s one thing you must do first and foremost: Order your chowder.
Fresh sourdough is made every morning in the neighbourhood, and there are few things that go better with sourdough than piping hot clam chowder. The savory soup is the perfect complement for the foggy chill that often embraces the city. Once you’re full, walk around the pier to the sound of barks—sea lion barks that is. Hundreds of sea lions call Pier 39’s West Marina home during the year and are entertaining animals to watch. While you’re staying close to the wharf, feel free to check out the Maritime Museum, where you can board turn-of-the-century vessels and wartime ships. For something different, you can always pop into the Musee Mecanique, which is a centre dedicated to classic arcade games and mechanical shows.
