"Blah!" Fisherman's Wharf Tip by hudin

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

I don't know who all of this would appeal to, but it's just one tacky store after another. It may bring good money in to the city, but for anyone who wants to actually see the place they came to visit and not ugly plastic models of landmarks, don't go here.

Unique Suggestions: Head out west towards the ocean, away from the Wharf. You'll come to the Marina eventually, which is very pretty and offers wonderful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. There are several buses that run the route is the 1Km walk is not to your liking.

Fun Alternatives: If you want somewhere that's still very open to accepting tourists, yet has more flavor and interest to it, go to the Powell Street and Union Square area. Lots more to see.
