If you're going to Fisherman's Wharf, parking is really bad and costly. It was $3 for 15 minutes, some places NO validated parking. The crowds, the street performers, the loiterers, made for an unpleasant experience.

You can take a whale tour, good eats everywhere, little shops to buy souvenirs. Love the area! Lots of people walking about. Street performers. Lots of fun for the family.

We booked a bay cruise that included a tour around Alcatraz Island. It was a wonderful way to see both Alcatraz and Angel Islands. We also went under the Golden Gate Bridge and had great views of the San Francisco skyline. it was a great way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny day

There are a few rides for kids, plenty of gift shops, food of all kind, and option to see some good views while walking there. It is somehow close to Alcatraz island, and could... More

Great spot for fun and food. Of course we had to have the crab sandwich and it was amazing, there is an old fashioned penny arcade that was lots of fun. The seagulls are huge and can be a bit over friendly.
