So many activities!  If you're taking a down day from more strenuous adventures, then this a worth-while walk through during your visit to SF. Whether you want to hunt for trinkets in souvenir shops or photograph sea lions, this is a great place to spend some time wandering in San Francisco.  Lots of great food and people watching!

Touristy but good for kids

It's an easy place for kids to explore. You can see a lot of sea lions. Is very touristy.

Nice but not recommended

I understand that this place may be an attraction to people with families that want a quick getaway but for someone looking to explore San Fransisco and the magnificent nature around it, it has little to offer and much less to make him/her excited.

Must Do

This is a must do if visiting San Francisco. There were lots of seals relaxing on the docks and many shops and restaurants nearby

Do the bungee jump

The bungee jump thing!!! That literally made our trips to Pier 39 as kids. My cousins and I would do flips on it. We also like the shop with the realistic food magnets.
