Lots to see and do in beautiful San Francisco but one of the main tourist attractions is the waterfront which includes several lively piers with lots of shopping and entertainment options. Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, is probably most famous for sea lion sightings where you can see them by the dozens, chilling out, occasionally crying out and fighting with each other over the best sun tanning spot. I could probably watch these lovely animals for hours.
Aside from that there are lots of cheesy cafes and restaurants, with random entertainment acts in the main square. You could also go up into to the water to a floating island and a watch tower and take great sunset snapshots of the Golden Bridge or Alcatraz.

If you’re in San Francisco you’ll probably find your way here at some point.
