Nob Hill Gazette: On The Waterfront

Seven years after setting sail from Norway, Andrew Furuseth came ashore in San Francisco in 1880, and the life of the average sailor was never the same.

History of Fisherman's Wharf

Those who are privileged to visit San Francisco never fail to recall with pleasure their stroll along this city’s historic Fisherman’s Wharf.

Rising on a hill across the street are the brick buildings of Ghirardelli Square, once a chocolate factory. Historical plaques tell the history of Domingo Ghirardelli who came to California to prospect gold but ended up becoming the king of chocolate. The Chocolate Manufactory & Soda Fountain still makes chocolate with the original old

fashioned machines and few can resist enjoying a luscious ice cream sundae with chocolate on top or a cup of hot chocolate.

Fisherman's Wharf Background

Fisherman's Wharf is a mile in length, starting at Aquatic Park and ending at Pier 39. Along with its variety of restaurants, the pulse of the neighborhood appeals to visitors of all persuasions, because of the myriad of activities, including the Wax Museum, Guinness Museum of World Records, Boudin Bakery and Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum. Additionally, the Red and White Fleet runs tour boats around Alcatraz and to the Golden Gate Bridge, both popular tours. Two shopping areas, The Anchorage and The Cannery, are located in the central area. Each is filled with unique stores, selling boutique items not available elsewhere.

Few visitors realize that the area known as Fisherman's Wharf extends to Aquatic Park, a popular attraction where residents and visitors alike have always enjoyed the opportunity to picnic, promenade or play bocce ball. The Maritime Museum, once the park's palatial bathhouse, exhibits memorabilia from the West Coast's seafaring days and includes giant masts, painted figureheads and detailed ship models. The building itself resembles a cruise ship, perfect for taking a break from explorations to sit on the outside deck and listen to the waves break on shore. Stay tuned for more info about Fisherman's Wharf!
