Start your walk from fisherman’s wharf and then go through pier 39... lots of small retail stores, restaurants and street performances

Touristy but worth the visit, plenty of places to eat and grab souvenirs and nice view off the wharf into the bay. Also worth a walk around surrounding area to experience even more of what San Francisco has to offer, including Chrissy Field.

Great place to see all the tacky tourist stuff people flick to. Personally I would avoid it so many other great things to do in the city

Stores in Pier 39 have a variety of products! From key chains to magnets and shot glasses! We love the crepe, bubba hump, the show and the shops! It’s a must see if you are going to SFO!

Lots of gift shops and cheesie spots to stop. But just go with it! Pier 39 is a must stop for San Fran. Be sure and stop by the rowdy sea lions!
