Fisherman’s Wharf

Defining the Embarcadero’s northern stretch, Fisherman’s Wharf draws a lively mix of tourists, performers and street peddlers alike to its bustling bay-front blocks. Staying true to its heritage, the Wharf continues to be the epicenter of San Francisco’s fishing community. That means no visit is complete without a cracked whole crab or a sourdough bread bowl brimming with clam chowder. Afterwards, watch the sea lions laze on the docks, visit the glorious ships on view at the Maritime Historical Park or shop for trinkets in the countless souvenir shops.
