Wanna do a major shopping? Pier 39 is the place, man! Go there and splurge. Pier 39 - the bay is yours. Shop, dine, and discover.

Pier 39 is one of the most popular travel destinations of San Francisco. The walking tour of Fisherman's Wharf starts from Pier 39. Those who visit Golden Gate Bridge generally visit Pier 39 too. Pier 39 represents the culture of entire San Francisco - I would say. This is such a nice place which you would definitely want to go again and again.

Pier 39 is full of shops - all sorts of shops. Crab House, Eagle Cafe, Hard Rock Cafe, and Pier Market Seafood Restaurant are some of the notable restaurants of Pier 39. Candy Baron, Chocolate Heaven, and other such options are available for snacks and sweet treats. For gifts, apparels, jewellery, and other accessories, you can find a lot of important shops such as Bliss, Fashion Trends, Alcatraz gifts, Antiquities, etc.
You can get ferries to experience breathtaking views of Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Aquarium of the Bay and bungee trampoline are additional attractions available in Pier 39. You can get trolleys at Pier 39 to take San Francisco Sight Seeing Tours. San Francisco Carousel, located centrally at Pier 39 is an all-time favorite of kids.

Another unique feature of Pier 39 is hundreds of Sea Lions found in West Marina. Another unique attraction is the multi-talented street performers who entertain the visitors.

Happy travelling.
