  • I would avoid this one at all costs, unless you have some strange craving to get caught in a human traffic jam for three hours while housewives from DeMoines get in fistfights over the Ann Taylor Loft clearance rack and their children throw tantrums

      I do not ever want to go bakc to Fisherman’s Wharf. I had heard from several people that it was a fun little touristy area, full of Ripley’s Believe It Or Nots, Wax Museums, terrible gift stores, bad greasy food and other coastal attractions.

      I went there, only to discover that it’s more of an outlet mall by the sea than anything else.


      True, there is still a Ripleys, but aside from that, its more like 300-pound people with creepy tattoos and 5 children, clutching Pottery Barn bags.

      It was really really crowded and I didn’t find anything even remotely fun to do there, aside from walk down to the end and take a picture of Alcatraz.

      There were no elephant ears or cotton candy, and ...


      • even the street musicians were kind of bad and apathetic.

        There are so many better places to go in San Francisco, for instance, Chinatown, The Mission, Haight Street, etc.

        Why even GO to San Francisco if you’re going to spend your whole vacation in what ammounts to a terrible mall? Worse yet, most people take the horrendously overpriced streetcars down there, and you

        aren’t even allowed to hang off the sides of them anymore.

        Want to get your pocket picked? Ride the tourist trolley.

        I would avoid this one at all costs, unless you have some strange craving to get caught in a human traffic jam for three hours while housewives from DeMoines get in fistfights over the Ann Taylor Loft clearance rack and their children throw tantrums.
