The Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf is a 4.5 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near San Francisco, California that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
The Embarcadero, which traces San Francisco's eastern shoreline, memorably demonstrates the good that can come from a natural disaster. After the 1989 earthquake, the old freeway was torn down, replaced by a breezy, beautiful promenade. Now you can stroll along the waterfront, past redeveloped piers, all the way to Fisherman's Wharf.
Walk on the North (water) side of Embarcadero and you can walk unimpeded by traffic lights. You can still catch a few glimpses of Fisherman's Wharf in between the tourist traps. Beautiful views of the Bay, Angel Island, Alcatraz, and Telegraph Hill
Touristy, but fun to walk and stop in the shops for souvenirs or delicious food.
More of a touristy walk but interesting!
Go early to miss the crowds, but if people watching is your thing, it's gold
Plenty of people watching and can be very crowded. Overall a nice place to walk.
This is a must-see for SF. Great little touristy walk to just have fun with.
There are many shops here. Go see the sea lions at one of the piers, can't think of the exact one off hand, and fight the crowds. Or at least fight them in June. The weather will be a lot cooler than you would think so if you are cold-natured, bring a light jacket.
I'm a native so I pretty much don't visit the tourist spots unless I'm showing company the city. Yet, it's an SF must see. There's been a trend of casualizing the area. The Franciscan used to be a place to dress up to...as was ASabella's which is now an Applebees. Nothing wrong with that, but the area is changing.
