What to do and what to see:

The San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, located at the western end of the Fisherman’s Wharf District in San Francisco, pays homage to the area’s long-time relationship with the sea. Several historic ships are moored at the Hyde Street Pier in the park, and the historic 1909 waterfront warehouse now houses a visitors’ center, which features a theater and a maritime library. The Maritime Park provides hands-on exhibits regaling the heritage of seafaring types, and several interpretive programs are offered. Lectures, concerts, guided tours, films and living history events are scheduled in the park, which is serviced by the city’s cable car transit system. Also incorporated into the park proper is the Aquatic Park Historic District, including beach access for swimming as well as concessions and facilities. Tourists are sure to gain a deeper appreciation of our nation’s relationship with the sea after a visit to the Maritime National Historic Park.
