I love Fisherman's Wharf and the crab sandwiches. It's not only for tourists, but for natives too.

Fisherman's Wharf is such a wonderful place, for tourists and locals, alike. I can remember my first visit when I was 18 and going to nursing school in LA - now, at 64, it is still one of my favorite spots, especially early in the morning when it isn't crowded - same with Chinatown and the North Beach area.
