About this activity

San Francisco has some pretty iconic attractions for the family, and Pier 39 is one of them - so it's worth a visit to really experience what people LOVE about this great city on the bay!

Pier 39 is FILLED with fun things for the family - no matter what the age! As you walk along this historic pier, you will walk past musicians, and sail boats, and even some sea lions who call it home!

There are attractions on the water to enjoy, including whale tours and rocket boat adventures, and parents - you might even like the wine tasting on the bay!

For those active kids, why not bounce in the very cool bungee, or explore the magical mirror maze that just keeps going on....and on....and on!

There are bikes for rent to explore the area, or you can simply spend a few hours in the fascinating Aquarium on the Bay!

Pier 39 is really a great place to just explore!

Those rumbling tummies will love the incredible range of restaurants and cafes, and even kids will get excited at the sites of the fun food carts and all those dessert treats - and yes, there is ice cream!

Then of course there is the shopping! From clothes, to fun gifts, and everything in between, it's just a place you will always find something new, and surprising, and something different every time you go back!

The ultimate fun in San Francisco - so let's go!
