Pier 39 is a touristy and full-of-life area in San Francisco, California. This is a great place to go for an evening stroll, buy San Francisco-souvenirs and chocolates, go window shopping, eat some shrimp, Fish n’ Chips or Clam Chowder and watch the seals or the boats come in after a long day of sailing in the San Francisco Bay. Let me show you a bit of Pier 39 at night.
By the way, Pier 39 also gives you views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge and Alcatraz. So late in the evening you see the bridges’ lights and even the beacon from Alcatraz’s lighthouse. (I wish had decent pictures of them to show you. )
The Sunday before last, I spent an evening at this pier and left there only when the crowds began thinning. Here are some pictures from Pier 39 ‘after all the lights came on’:
