After falling down at Lombard Street because of its unmistakable beauty, we headed to Pier 39 at the Fisherman’s Wharf to have our lunch. Fisherman’s Wharf is one of the most popular tourist spots in San Francisco which can probably be considered as an icon of the city. The equally famous Pier 39 is a waterfront complex at the edge of Fisherman’s Wharf offering shopping, dining and entertainment experiences for adults and kids alike.
We parked our car at the far end of Fisherman’s Wharf so we had quite a hike towards Pier 39. We didn’t mind though as we truly needed to stretch our legs since we’ve been driving since the day before from Los Angeles. The only downside was, it was freaking hot that day. It was always showing that it’s going to be cold when we arrive when I was checking the weather before we left the East Coast but then the sun was shining quite mightily when we stepped out of the car. It was quite humid too, I had to double check if we were in San Francisco or was I back in Dubai? Totally kidding! San Francisco’s got nothing with Dubai when it comes to humidity. Lol.
We walked the whole length of the Fisherman’s Wharf towards Pier 39. There were quite a lot of people at the wharf when we were there, probably making the most out of the beautiful weather which the San Franciscans don’t normally get. Pier 39 was even more packed specially the waterfront restaurants and those with al fresco dining area. We chose to have our lunch at Fog Harbor. It offers an amazing 180-degree view of the pier and Alcatraz Island. As it was packed, we were unable to get a seat beside the window which would’ve put our dining experience a notch higher. Not that our experience was bad because the service was actually good. I had the famous crab sandwich of course, being a seafood lover, I loved it! 🙂
After our great lunch, we had a walk around the area some more before heading to our hotel for check-in. I can definitely understand why Pier 39 is famous for tourists and locals alike. I can see myself frequenting this place myself if I ever had the chance to live here. 🙂
