"Pier 39" Pier 39 Tip by Dabs
Pier 39, San Francisco: 40 reviews and 49 photos
If it's even possible Pier 39 is more of a tourist trap than Fisherman's Wharf, we spent all of about 15 minutes here as I wanted to see the resident sea lions that have made their home on a series of docks off Pier 39 after which we ran through the Pier to get out as quickly as we could.
Pier 39 is filled with tourist oriented shops and restaurants, if that's your thing then you will love it here. I probably would have enjoyed it when I was in high school or maybe even college but as an adult, I find it overcrowded and filled with uninteresting things.
Unique Suggestions: Come here to see the sea lions if that interests you and leave
Fun Alternatives: San Francisco is filled with great restaurants, do a little research and find something that's not part of a national chain or serving overpriced, subpar food
