When we went to San Francisco the last time, we thought there were two things we must do. First, was to take a ride in cable cars as it is an iconic means of transportation, and second was to visit Fisherman’s Wharf.

When it comes to public transportation you never know what to expect in a city; some like it, some don’t, but the cable car ride in San Francisco has something romantic and offers a great way to see the city’s scenery.

We jumped on for a ride from the downtown main stop to head out to Fisherman’s Wharf.  Here’s a TIP: be sure to sit on the outside of the trolley on the right hand side of the cars leaving from downtown.

 

By doing so you will get the best views and they truly are fantastic. Once we have arrived to Fisherman’s Wharf we were hungry for some crab and clam chowder.  This place is famous for its wide variety of seafood.

Clam Chowder

Much of this fame is due to the annual harvest of that most delectable of all crustaceans, the Dungeness crab of San Francisco.  So a visit in San Francisco will not count without a STOP at one of the local restaurants and bars to try this delicacy.

You can choose from many great places to eat like: Scoma’s, Gary Danco, Franciscan Crab and more. For us, the best part was to sit back and relax with a glass of sparkling wine feeling the ocean breeze, feeding the seagulls and indulging in our clam chowder served in bread, a few crab cakes and of course, fresh crab.
