San Francisco is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California, with population of 870,000. San Francisco was founded on June 29, 1776. It’s a popular tourist destination and San Francisco is known for cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of architecture and landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown district.
The Disney Wonder only went to San Francisco once and it was a big thing for everyone. We would be going under the Golden Gate Bridge! Everyone (crew and guests) got up early to watch us go under. My dad even watched from home in the UK! I even managed to watch us go under it at night.
Pier 39 is a shopping centre and a tourist attraction built on a pier. There are shops, restaurants, views of the sea lions and even an aquarium. It’s located at the edge of Fisherman’s Wharf. The pier first opened in 1978. The sea lions have always been present in San Fransisco Bay, people think that the sea lions moved to the pier because of the 1989 earthquake, possibly feel safer in the bay.
