Fisherman's Wharf

  If I feel tired or sad , I know what I need to do. I just go to Fisherman's Wharf,    my favorite place in San Francisco. I try to describe something about Fisherman's Wharf.

  Fisherman's Wharf is famous for its Italian seafood restaurants with waterfront views.Vendors along Jefferson Street sell Dungeness crab from steaming cauldrons and walkway seafood cocktails. Since 1849, the Boudin family has baked the original San Francisco sourdough bread; clam chowder in a sourdough bowl is a signature San Francisco dish. I love to eat all this food!

  A variety of specialty shops and restaurants are located at the Anchorage and The Cannery, Ghirardelli  Square, once home to the world famous chocholade factory, has been renovated to an open-air center filled with specialty shops,international restaurants, an ice cream parlor and displays of the original chocolate making machines. I used to eat that chocolate a lot. It smells so good. 

    The San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park extends from Aquatic Park to Hyde Street Pier were you can board four national land mark ships including the famous 1886 square-rigger Balclutha and the 1890 ferryboat Eureka. I walk along the park and really relax .
