Description

Fisherman’s Wharf is an internationally renowned tourist hotspot, famously known for its spectacular bay views, delicious clam chowder and fried fish. This part of San Francisco, once the little Italy of the city, is known for its beautiful waterfront settings, restaurants and shops and is a great place to get a flavor for the city. Housing several popular tourist attractions like Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and the Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum and many more interesting tourist sites, Fisherman’s Wharf is definitely worth a visit when in the city. Visitors can also catch a ferry to nearby Alcatraz or enjoy a relaxing cruise offering splendid views of the city, from the waterfront. Exploring the restored 19th and 20th century ships lining the waterfront at Hyde Street Pier, which is now the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, will also be quite interesting. Old characteristics of the city are still evident here and the cities past has influenced its present day culture, sights, sounds and food, making the famous waterfront a must visit when in the city.
