San Francisco - The Marina, Fisherman's Wharf & the Piers (Chapter)
This is the The Marina, Fisherman's Wharf & the Piers chapter from Lonely Planet’s San Francisco guidebook.
The waterfront is a major attraction for sea lion antics, old-school video games and getaways to and from Alcatraz. To the west, the Marina has chic boutiques in a former cow pasture and organic dining along the waterfront.
