Fisherman's Wharf's Best Catch: The Four Diamond Argonaut Hotel
Fabled Fisherman's Wharf is one mile long but stretches back decades into the most colorful years of San Francisco's history. The iconic site not only was a witness to the days of tall ships, Barbary Coast roustabouts and Gold Rush fever, it was the central player. And talk about longevity. Today, it's still the number one attraction for most visitors to the City by the Bay. Visitors from an earlier era, immigrants from all over the world, have since brought their culture â and flavors â to the Wharf, so today you can experience savory Italian cioppino, French bread freshly off the racks and New England-style crab served fresh out of a roiling pot.
Families in particular love attractions here such as the Ripley's Believe it or Not, the Hyde Street Pier with its historic clipper ships, and Hornblower boat tours of the Bay to see sights such as famous Alcatraz Island. But Fisherman's Wharf is much more than a piece of history. The area is a vibrant piece of San Francisco's fabric of daily life for locals.
From the older Italian-American gents playing bocce ball in Aquatic Park to fit joggers running the nearby footpaths, Fisherman's Wharf still moves to the rhythm of the city and the Argonaut is happy to call it home.
