SAN FRANCISCO MAP

COVERING THE WATERFRONT

The sights of the Bay Area are too numerous to cover here, so we’ll focus on the Embarcadero and the Walt Disney Family Museum.

Sights along the waterfront can easily fill a full day. The cruise pier is centrally located on the Embarcadero, one mile to Ghirardelli Square in one direction, and a mile to the the Ferry Building and Market St. in the other. Walk towards the Golden Gate and you’ll quickly reach Pier 39, which is full of shops, restaurants, the Aquarium of the Bay, a museum of mechanical arcade games, and a World War II sub. Next is Pier 41, home to the Blue & Gold Fleet, for tours and the ferry to Sausalito ($20/$11.50 child, round-trip, http://www.blueandgoldfleet.com). A bit beyond that is Fisherman’s Wharf, with even more places to eat, and then the National Maritime Historical Park on the Hyde St. Pier, filled with historic ships. Two more blocks and you’re at Ghirardelli Square for food and shopping. Turn right exiting the cruise pier, and the Alcatraz Ferry will be right next door. Book ahead, as walk-up tickets may be hard to get (http://www.alcatrazcruises.com). Unless you plan a casual lunch at Pier 23 Restaurant, consider riding the F-Line trolley to the Ferry Building at the base of Market St., which is a foodie heaven filled with food shops and restaurants, plus Tuesdays Farmer’s Market (10:00 am–2:00 pm) The Walt Disney Family Museum is about three miles from the pier, in the Presidio. The museum’s excellent, interactive exhibits are a must-do for serious Disney fans. The 2-3 hour visits on shore excursions are too brief for enthusiasts—visit on your own. $20/$12 ages 6-17. Closed Tuesdays! Visit http://www.waltdisney.com for more information. While there, tour the Presidio on the park’s free shuttles (see page 404). Visit http://www.presidio.gov Consider CityPASS, which includes Muni transit and cable car passes, a harbor or Alcatraz cruise, and admission to three museums ($94/$69 ages 5-12, http://www.citypass.com).
