San Fran’s Pier 39: Besides the Sea Lions.

When in San Francisco, I always make sure to stop by Pier 39 along the Embarcadero. Like most people, my main motivation is to see the famous sea lions, but that’s not all.

The foodie in me also takes me to the outdoor strawberry stand at Vlahos Orchards Fruit Market.

I also always make sure to stop in at Chocolate Heaven.

More local and imported chocolate in one place than you can imagine. You’ll come across chocolate covered anything, but I always gravitate towards…

I walked around the perimeter checking out the sea lions, along with the boats and marina and San Francisco Bay.

Peaked into some of the other shops, mainly the NFL Shop. There is a great selection no matter your team. Have bought lot’s of Denver Bronco gear there over the years. ๐Ÿ™‚
