Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, California
Fisherman's Wharf is a historic wharf in Monterey, United States. Used as an active wholesale fish market into the 1960s, the wharf became a tourist attraction as commercial fishing tapered off in the area. Fisherman's Wharf is technically known as The Old Fisherman's Wharf, to distinguish it from the current commercial wharf. Fisherman's Wharf was built by the Pacific Coast Steamship Company in 1870 for the loading and unloading of passengers and goods; the wharf was used by other commercial operations, the city of Monterey took ownership in 1913. The wharf was expanded through 1920. In 1923, while an unusually large shipment of sardines was being loaded onto the S. S. San Antonio, bad weather caused the ship to lean on the wharf, 132 feet of the wharf collapsed; when the wharf was reconstructed, it was extended by 750 feet. Municipal Wharf II was constructed in 1926. After World War II, the sardine population in Monterey Bay collapsed. With the contraction of the fishing industry, Old Fisherman's Wharf reoriented its business focus toward tourism.
Fisherman's Wharf is lined with seafood restaurants ranging from casual, open-air clam bars, to formal indoor dining with views of the bay. Along with Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf is one of the few areas in Monterey that sells souvenirs, so the restaurants are interspersed with gift shops, jewelry stores, art galleries, candy shops. Whale watching tours and fishing trips leave from the wharf, sea lions sleep on the pilings and moored boats in the bay. At the entrance to the wharf is Custom House Plaza, the historical center of Monterey.

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco
Fisherman's Wharf is a neighborhood and popular tourist attraction in San Francisco, California. It encompasses the northern waterfront area of San Francisco from Ghirardelli Square or Van Ness Avenue east to Pier 35 or Kearny Street; the F Market streetcar runs through the area, the Powell-Hyde cable car lines runs to Aquatic Park, at the edge of Fisherman's Wharf, the Powell-Mason cable car line runs a few blocks away. San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf gets its name and neighborhood characteristics from the city's early days of the mid to 1800s when Italian immigrant fishermen came to the city by the bay to take advantage of the influx of population due to the gold rush. One, Achille Paladini, found success wholesaling local fish as owner of the Paladini Fish Company, came to be known as the "Fish King". Most of the Italian immigrant fishermen settled in the North Beach area close to the wharf and fished for the local delicacies and the now famed Dungeness crab. From until the present day it remained the home base of San Francisco's fishing fleet.
Despite its redevelopment into a tourist attraction during the 1970s and 1980s, the area is still home to many active fishermen and their fleets. In 2010, a $15 million development plan was proposed by city officials hoping to revitalize its appearance for tourists, to reverse the area's downward trend in popularity among San Francisco residents, who have shunned the locale over the years. One of the busiest and well known tourist attractions in the western United States, Fisherman's Wharf is best known for being the location of Pier 39, the Cannery Shopping Center, Ghirardelli Square, a Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, the Musée Mécanique, Wax Museum at Fishermans Wharf, the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Seafood restaurants are plenty in the area; some include the floating Forbes Island restaurant at Pier 39 to stands that serve fresh seafood, most notably Dungeness crab and clam chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl. Some of the restaurants, including Fishermen's Grotto, Pompei's Grotto and Alioto's, go back for three generations of the same family ownership.
Other restaurants include chains like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.. The area has an In-N-Out Burger. Nearby Pier 45 has a chapel in memory of the "Lost Fishermen" of San Francisco and Northern California. There is a sea lion colony next to Pier 39, they "took-up" residence months before the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. The sea lions lie on wooden docks that were used for docking boats. Fisherman's Wharf plays host to many San Francisco events, including a world-class fireworks display for Fourth of July, some of the best views of the Fleet Week air shows featuring The Blue Angels.
