  • I'm actually here with no purpose. I didn't know there was a place like ni in the San Francisco Bay area. But because the tour we asked to gather here, so my friend and I to this area. Due to the arrival of our earlier than promised, my friend and I put the empty time to wander around this place. Because the time is not much, I just saw the grounds only and not got to see his ships in more closely. Perhaps another time

  • Not really impressive, not a whole lot to see or left to your imagination. Would not do again. Only if your an old sailor?  more »
  • It was the first National Park we visited after Alcatraz (discovered almost by accident) and that is where we bought the annual pass valid for all parks "America The Beautiful". Very interesting, you can hop on historic ships and from the pier you have a nice view of the Bay and its harbor. Ideal for wandering along old freighters and sailboats, very suitable for children.

  • Stayed the night on the Eureka with Cub Scouts. Had a great time. Very informative and fun.
  • Slightly off the main stream of Fisherman's Wharf is where you will find this historical treasure that tells the story of the Pacific maritime history. Lots to see - historic ships, a Visitor Center, Maritime Museum, and Maritime Research Center. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and we just about had the place all to ourselves.
  • A fun park although be aware theres some homelessness Even so,This is a phenomenal place to be. It’s perfect for a stroll on a beautiful San Francisco day or to take your little brother to see the boats, as I often do. It’s one of the most ideal parks in this city due to its lovely location in picturesque Fishermen’s Wharf. I love the view of the city and fun neighborhood stores and the fact that it’s great for any age ranging from a toddler all the way to an elementary schooler. Just last week, we saw a bouncy house party held there. It’s a great spot, I highly recommend it.
  • This is a great spot. If you are looking for great views of the San Francisco Bay, schooners, sloops and vintage sailing history this is well worth visiting. If you wish to walk aboard also there is a small fee.
  • Great place with lots of history. One of the more reasonable things to do while in SF.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
