FISHERMAN's WHARF, San Francisco , CA

San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf has many unique, interesting and fun attractions that can only be found in the legendary City by the Bay. There is truly something for everyone to enjoy. While some attractions have a fee, there are a number of free attractions to enjoy as you walk through our Wharf neighborhood. You can take a stroll through Aquatic Park and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.

The sea lions camped out in PIER 39's West Marina have been endearingly coined, "Sea Lebrities." These boisterous barking pinnipeds started arriving in droves, taking over the docks in January 1990 shortly after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. At first they numbered from 10-50, but due to a plentiful herring supply, available dock space and the marina’s protected environment, the population grew to more than 300 within a few months. Each winter, the population can increase up to 900 sea lions, most of which are male. During the summer months, the sea lions migrate south to the Channel Islands for breeding season, but in recent years a small group stays year-round at PIER 39's K-Dock.

The Wax Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf features more than 240 life-like wax personalities in 50 all new scenes, many enhanced with informative narrations. Great attention has been given to the artistic lighting, realistic props and backdrops. Guests view all aspects of life as they wander through the Hall of Religion, Chamber of Horrors, King Tut’s Tomb, Palace of Living Art, Gallery of Stars and much, much more. Sports Heroes, Royalty, Master Artisans, United States Presidents, Pulitzer Prize winning Scientists and Humanitarians offer something of interest and enjoyment for everyone

I also went to the Rainforest Cafe across the street from the Fisherman's Wharf. It is a typical rainforest theme restaurant. It had animated jungle creatures, thunder, lightning ---and their menus were outstanding and affordable. Don't miss this place whenever you go to the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
