Fishing boats, souvenir shops and seals – they make Fisherman’s Wharf one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions. Locals are quite adamant about avoiding this touristy area, but visitors just can’t get enough of it. It may not be the most authentic place in town, but it’s definitely fun and entertaining.
The original name of the wharf was Meiggs Wharf, but this changed over time into Fisherman’s Wharf, due to the large number of fishing boats that moored here. Although it’s still the base for a small fleet of around 25 boats, Fisherman’s Wharf is primarily a ‘strip’ lined with shops and entertainment these days. In addition, it’s also the departure point for the ferry to the famous prison island of Alcatraz.
