Occupying the top of the itinerary for every visit San Francisco tour, its history, development and culture are deeply ingrained in the piers of Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s all about the water. There it is today, founded in 1891 and waiting for those who visit San Francisco to take full advantage of the heritage architecture, museums, restaurants, markets and seafood that have become the stars of this lively setting. One of the few visitors’ destinations that has grown up more naturally than most, the Wharf’s original authenticity speaks volumes about its genuine reality.
Look there on the corner, beyond the sign, to its left and you’ll see a handsome example of Art Deco architecture. The sign itself is famous the world over and, called the “Crab Wheel,” it’s the spot photographed the most by tours in San Francisco.
