An iconic destination in the City by the Bay, the 45-acre waterfront complex of Pier 39 has welcomed millions of locals and tourists since it opened in 1978. It features more than 90 shops and attractions, 14 full-service restaurants, a 5-acre waterpark and a 300-berth marina, so spending an entire day here is easy. Not to miss are the sea lions at K-Dock, which began “hauling out” here in 1989, and the spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.
