"Fisherman's Wharf? It stinks!" Fisherman's Wharf Tip by Terrajarret

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco: 77 reviews and 50 photos

With only a few days in this wonderful city I felt the need to see what I had heard of as the "highlights" so went to Fishermen's Wharf. Not worth it. Don't do it. The shops were the same types that you see in any over run tourist attraction around the country selling overpirced cheesy souvieners and t-shirts. There was very little to do there, the restraunts were perhaps the worst I came across in the city. A true waste of time.

Unique Suggestions: While the area itself is horrid, the street car ride there is worth it. It's an inexpensive way to take some pressure off of your feet for a while and get up the hill!
