San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park

San Francisco ghirardelli square

From Pier 39, we headed over to Ghirardelli Square, but we didn’t end up staying very long.  We did find a visitor information booth and they suggested we check out the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.  It was only a few blocks away, so we walked over.

The maritime museum features many historic ships.  We could see them before we even got there.

Thank goodness we didn’t have to walk that street. It makes my knees weak just looking at that photo.

There’s no cost to walk the park, but if you wanted to board any of the ships there was an additional fee.

After walking the pier, we were hungry again and went in search of a quick dinner before heading back to the hotel.  After all, parking was $40 so we wanted to make sure we looked around as much as possible before heading back… LOL.
