Pier 39 is where the tourists meet the Wharf. It's touristy and expensive, and you'll be innudated with dumb things to buy, but on a clear day, the view of the bay and of course, the Rock--Alcatraz, is priceless. Soak in the culture on a cooler day with a bowl of chowder in a sourdough bread bowl and in February, mozy along here for deals on crabs during the city's Crab Festival.
