Pier 39 Reviews


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

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.

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


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.


Along with Fisherman's Wharf, this is a must do while in SF! Street performers, harbor seals, and lots of restaurants and shops!
