Popular with tourists and sea lions, Fisherman's Wharf is full of shops, silly museums and family fun. Visitors who look closely will see it is still a working wharf, particularly busy during peak crab season in December. The Wharf offers boardwalk-style family entertainment with seafood vendors and attractions, such as Pier 39, Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum and a wax museum. The Red & White Fleet offers several cruises and trips across the bay. For maritime-lovers and WWII buffs, the San Francisco Maritime Museum is at the foot of Polk Street. and the massive USS Pampanito is docked at Pier 45.
