You’ll find San Francisco in the northern section of California along the west coast between Santa Rosa and San Jose. The large city of over 880,000 people is actually at the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay area. Pier 39, at the tip of North Beach next to Fisherman’s Wharf, is a shopping center and tourist attraction with an aquarium, video arcade, and live street performers.
Since 1978, people have been flocking to Pier 39 in San Francisco, and so have the sea lions. In fact, over a thousand sea lions have flocked to the pier to get some sun and enjoy entertaining the crowds. So many of them gathered there that the owners removed boats from the area for the sea lions to have more space.
You can also view the Golden Gate Bridge from here, and it is a must-see for everyone who visits. Be sure to bring a camera so you can get some shots and a phone to get some selfies. There are also shows, a roller coaster, and a 3D laser shooting gallery in the digital theater. Dancing, magicians, comedy acts, and jugglers perform right on the pier, so there is fun for everyone. Be sure to drop off your bags at one of the Bounce locations in the area so you can take part.
Fun fact: While the population of sea lions ebbs and flows throughout the seasons at Pier 39, a record-breaking 1,701 of them migrated to the Pier in November 2009. Six new docks were hauled in to accommodate the new inhabitants.
Wherever you are coming from or going to, stopping in at Pier 39 is a must while you are in the San Francisco area. With more than two dozen attractions, over 30 eateries, and 46 shops and boutiques, you will have plenty to keep you busy. That does not even count the street performances, sea lions, and view of the bay. No matter what, Bounce recommends you not miss any of these things at the pier.

I was a little bit hesitant to book (I've never used a service like this before for luggage storage) but I needed a place that would be open late and was convenient to Bart to get to the airport. The market staff was very friendly and my bag was kept safe while I explored the Mission District in San Francisco. Everything was great: convenience and friendly service at a very affordable price!
Quick transaction when dropping off and picking up luggage at Hotel. Download the app and schedule the storage ahead of time, so that they can find your booking on their computer, and quickly tag your items. Allowed my husband and I to spend our last day in San Francisco hands free, since our flight wasn’t until 11pm. Thanks!
I was so relieved to find this storage service. It made our day at The Ferry Building in San Francisco so much more enjoyable. The location was very convenient and the front desk personnel at Hotel Griffon were courteous and prompt. I'll definitely use this service again and recommended the service to family and friends.
