Great park for everyone and every member of the family. The best place so far if I think of the amusement centers we've been in the past.

If you love rides and food stalls, this place is highly recommended for you. It's all worth the bucks!

It was vacation, and yes, I confess, I was a total tourist and enjoyed Pier 39. Great shops, really great food. Perfect place to wander around and enjoy the kinds of crowds you are willing to deal with because it's a vacation.

Yes it is a tourist trap. Yes the stores are all over-priced. Yes it is crowded. Yes the restaurants are over-priced mediocre food. But I will be damned if I still just can't resist this place. A spectacular people watching venue. A nice small aquarium, great views of the bay, noisy and stinky seal lions (or sea pigs, I don't know). Love watching the tourists getting lost and confused. The shows are a bit stale and I actually tipped a guy selling CDs to not sing any more as he was destroying Nights in White Satin, but overall, Satchell and I shall return.

I took my parents here over the weekend. Yes, it is a touristy spot but sometimes it is nice to be a tourist in your own town!

This is the ultimate tourist trap & must do when in San Franisco. There are plenty of eateries, shops & views of the ocean. The sea lions on the dock are the best part.

Pier 39 is the ultimate tourist attraction. The pier has two levels filled with both cheap and expensive restaurants, including Bubba Gump's, Pier Market and Boudin Sourdough Bakery. There are several kid friendly attractions such as a double-decker carousel and an aquarium. I love all the unique stores on Pier 39, my favorites being the Sock Shop, Le Beastro, Making History and We Be Knives. Pier 39 has a lot of great photo ops, especially at the end of the pier where you can view the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the famous seals! Parking is expensive and hard to find if the lot is full and on the weekends it gets very crowded on the pier. However I highly recommend Pier 39 for visitors or people who haven't been before as they have something for everyone, especially kids and pet owners!

I've got mixed feelings about pier 39. The shops, and their staff s are very good, but the common areas are crowded and a bit cramped. I also have buyer's remorse about some of the pricey items I bought.

On the other hand, one can find beautiful, original art that cannot be found anywhere else. As far as the eateries, if you get a nice table, the views of the bay are fantastic. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to find a better place at the Embercadero to eat, while relaxing at the same time.
