    Many shops, restaurants, museums and souvenires can be found at this place. The ferry to Alcatraz leaves from here.

    At Hyde Street Pier to the western end of Fisherman's Wharf is the Maritime Museum and the U.S.S. Pampanito. These make a trip to the wharf worth doing. The submarine is especially fascinating.

    Great view of San Francisco Bay. I had the best Bloody Mary I've ever had at Nick's Lighthouse (No. 5).

    Some more views of Fishermans Wharf. Some of the more popular places at the Wharf are Pier 39 and Ghiradelli Square. Try an Irish coffe at the Buena Vista.

    stroll along Fisherman's Wharf and pick up some local, freshly caught fish from the street vendors. Steaming crab, anyone?

    Hm, isn't this supposed to Sly Stallone in his role as Rambo? Well, you can find him (the wax figure) here at the Wax Museum.

    by Bursland Written May 8, 2007

    If you want to see what life was like aboard a US world war 2 submarine then head for pier 45 and take a trip around the USS Pampanito .It is a very interesting tour with an accompanying audio guide.

    Eats at the pier

    No visit to San Fransisco would be complete without taking a stroll on the Fishermans Wharf. Stop at any 'pier-side' vendors for some local specialties like Clam Chowder bread bowl

    Fisherman's Wharf.

    by generasianx Written Aug 11, 2006

    Fisherman's Wharf is pretty much a tourist trap with shops and restaurants.

    My rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

    Golden Gate Bridge in the backdrop. Sea lions. Overlooking the Alcatraz Island.

    From here 200 police officers ran to the Golden Gate Bridge and back, for a fund-raiser. We spend hours relaxing and viewing the erea by cable car.
