Fisherman's Wharf is one of the most popular destinations of San Francisco. Our walking tour will venture beyond the souvenir shops and fast food restaurants and explore the history of this important area. We will begin at Pier 39 with a look at the Stellar Sea Lions and proceed along the Embarcadero (mostly flat) until we reach Ghiradelli Square. We will stop along the way to note the active fishing boats, historical ships, Seaman's Chapel and the restored former factories (Cannery and Ghiradelli)
