Pier 39 is a shopping center and popular tourist attraction built on a pier in San Francisco, California. At Pier 39, there are shops, restaurants, a video arcade, street performances, the Aquarium of the Bay, virtual 3D rides, and views of California sea lions hauled out on docks on Pier 39's marina. A two-story carousel is one of the pier's more dominant features, although it is not directly visible from the street and sits towards the end of the pier. The family-oriented entertainment and presence of marine mammals make this a popular tourist location for families with kids.

The pier is located at the edge of the Fisherman's Wharf district and is close to North Beach, Chinatown, and the Embarcadero. The area is easily accessible with the historic F Market streetcars.

From the pier one can see Angel Island, Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay Bridge. Blue & Gold Fleet's bay cruises leave from Pier 39.

  • The bartender remembered me and my bf which is really nice since we are locals. They have a great deal on beer flights if you aren't sure what beer to get. The bartender definitely needs someone to help him out if it gets busy. So people don't get mad if he is a little slow, he is doing his best
  • Nice selection of Cali beers, all which tasted satisfactory. Got the mixed seafood dish and the fish tastes like dirt. Excellent customer service though
