A great free thing to do is walk along the Embarcadero from AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play, to Fisherman's Wharf...about a two mile walk. Along the way there are: plaques and pictures recounting historical events in the old San Francisco port; the gorgeous historical Ferry Building with the marketplace, several terrific restaurants, a bookstore, Peet's coffee and, of course, the ferries; several restaurants, Pier 33 with ferries to Alcatraz, Pier 35 where huge passenger ships pick up passengers bound for Alaska or Mexico; the Bay Aquarium, Pier 39 and all of Fisherman's Wharf. A person would not have to spend a dime...but could, if they wished!!
