It's so easy to get anywhere from Pillar Point RV Park...to get to Fisherman's wharf just drive 20 minutes north to the Colma BART station, take it to the Embarcadero, grab the F train trolley and boom...you're at Fisherman's wharf..less than 90 minutes from point to point..no traffic to deal with, no high parking (if you're lucky enough to find a space) fees to pay.
Something new just opened up on the pier and we got a release from our friends at SFTravel to tell you about it...
While most visitors to San Francisco have probably seen the sea lions lounging at PIER 39, the new the Sea Lion Center at the north end puts the playful pinnipeds in a whole new perspective. The Center is a free nature center where guests can learn about the world famous California sea lions that inhabit the docks on the northwest side of the PIER. Operated and managed by Aquarium of the Bay, the Sea Lion Center overlooks PIER 39’s K-Dock, the usual hangout of these charismatic mammals that mysteriously made this their home in January 1990, shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake. The Sea Lion Center features interactive displays, educational videos, fascinating presentations and one- on-one interactions with naturalists. Guests can touch real sea lion artifacts including pelts and skulls, and size themselves up next to a life-size sea lion skeleton. For information visit www.aquariumofthebay.org.
