This place is much more pleasant to walk around than the more popularly Pier 39 in San Francisco, which is more like a zoo. If Jack London Square was more successful, it wouldn't be as nice to walk around in. It's mostly quiet solitude.

You'll also want to check out the varied wares offered by the non-aggressive street vendors who line up their booths in the center of the square. They offer everything from spices to hand-crafted jewelry and clothing at reasonable prices.
When you tire of shopping, you may want to pay a visit to the cabin of the Square's namesake, which was relocated at an end of the Square by one of the writer's friends after London's death. Next to the cabin is Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon, a fun bar that has been crafted from the wreckage of a whaling ship, where you can whet your whistle. Or you may choose to visit Mr. Espresso for a cup of coffee to enjoy as you sit on a bench and enjoy the ocean view.
You might also be able to tour Franklin Roosevelt's "Floating White House," the U.S.S. Potomac, situated at the opposite end of the Square from Jack London's cabin, which was, unfortunately, closed for renovation during our visit.
