San Francisco - Marina (Chapter)
This is the Marina, Fisherman’s Wharf & the Piers chapter from Lonely Planet’s San Francisco guidebook.
Fisherman’s Wharf is a major attraction for visitors (but not locals) for its sea lion antics and ferries to and from Alcatraz. The Marina has good boutique-shopping, bars and restaurants, and the evening offers excellent people-watching of the fancy-pants Marina crowd.
