When at Fisherman's Wharf, be sure to check out Pier 39. It's one of those places that people love or have because it is so touristy. Basically, it is a pier that has been converted into a mall. There are many shops and restaurants there. I particularly like the souvenir shop at the entrance which has lots of items at a reasonable price. Pier 39's other attractions include the Aquarium of the Bay, the Venetian Carousel, and Turbo Ride (a simulation theatre). It is also known for the sea lions that seasonally make K dock their home. When I was there in July 2005, the sea lions were elsewhere. When I visited in June and September of 2006, however, they were there in numbers.
