About Pier 39
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.
