San Francisco draws millions of tourists from all over the world because of its endless attractions, live entertainment, science and art museums, breathtaking beauty and more. During your stay in this vivacious city, be sure to check out the tourist hotspot: Fisherman’s Wharf.

Fisherman’s Wharf

The Wharf is fun for individuals and families alike. Explore the piers, including the famous Pier 39 and check out a local farmers market, an array of unique clothing and souvenir shops, world-class restaurants, an outdoor merry-go-round, or explore old Navy ships.

Consider visiting the Wharf Aquarium of the Bay. It offers an impressive 65,000 square feet of walk-through tunnel exhibits, transparent touch pools, and a bubbling mountain stream exhibit. The Fisherman’s Wharf-Aquarium is home to over 20,000 marine animals including stingrays, Jellyfish, octopus, and over fifty sharks. The aquarium also has a display with playful otters. The touch pools allow visitors to interact with several types of animals including bat rays, leopard sharks, sea cucumbers, starfish and other kinds of life found in tidepools. Fully immerse yourself in an undersea experience as you stroll through their 300-foot acrylic tunnels that are surrounded by schools of fish, bay rays, skates, and sharks.

Experience the thrill of a rollercoaster and the excitement of a state-of-the-art laser blasting game at 7D Experience on the pier. With a massive movie screen, the latest 3D technology, and a 20-seat theatre you can awaken your senses as you ride, blast and compete in other dimensions.

After a full day of sightseeing, treat yourself to a full-body “Aquamassage” water massage at Vitality located on Pier 39. If you are looking to boost your energy and stimulate your senses, treat yourself with a visit to Vitality’s Oxygen Bar. The oxygen bar offers a variety of aromatic scents that assist in guests reaping the calming benefits of oxygen therapy.

For casual dining, check out Wipeout Bar & Grill, Players Sports Grill & Arcade, Hard Rock Cafe, Grotto’s or Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. For a more world-class taste, consider Crab House, Fog Harbor Fish House, Hana Zen Japanese Grill or Louie’s Italian & Seafood.
