If your a San Franciscian, I know Pier 39 can be overrated at times, but there's something special about taking mini visits to the tourist locations where you live. I can actually feel the excitement from other travelers in the air. Walking past all the sweet scented bakeries, fresh fruit stands, silly side walk entertainment, and carousels makes me feel giddy like a little girl all over again. Plus, the location makes for a romantic date with my hubs where we love to visit our favorite quirky stores, such as the magic and candy shop, and eat the best clam chowder bread bowl soup with a side of sweet potato fries. Also, on a beautiful day such as today, the view of the bay & bridge during sunset is breathtaking.
