Fisherman's Wharf accessible from downtown San Francisco is a must see area of the City. Getting there you can take busses 9X, 47Van Ness and the world famous Cable Cars. On the way to the wharf some of the cable cars will travel pass the crooked street, also known as Lombard Street to the locals. Bring your camera because you'll need it to take some great pictures.
Fisherman's Wharf is a fun place for young and old. There is something for everyone.
For the children there are many activities offered, such as watching the sea lions take a sun bath and a magic show at Pier 39. They can also ride a carousel.
World famous for its crab restaurants, the crab boats dock at the kitchen entrance of the restaurants. Eat only the freshest crab at some of the best restaurants in the country at the wharf. Boudin's Bakery is still using the same ‘starter' in its sourdough breads as they used when first opened in 1849. The bakery has a large plate glass window with microphone so you can ask questions of the baker as they roll out their bread dough. Ask for the alligator or turtle shaped bread for the kiddies. I personally recommend the clam chowder in sour dough bread bowl if you plan to eat there.
Some of the other activities at the wharf include, bicycle rental for rides across the Golden Gate Bridge, ferry rides to Marin County, Angel Island, Alcatraz and Marin World at Vallejo.
