America's Most-Visited Tourist Attractions: Pier 39

No. 20 Pier 39, San Francisco

Annual Visitors: 8,133,700

Just east of Fisherman’s Wharf, tidy two-story buildings line this wooden pier that leads to spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and sometimes dozens of sea lions napping on wooden docks. Outdoor seating at some of the 30 cafés, seafood restaurants, donut shops, candy stores, pizzerias and wine bars makes it easy to linger over those views. And for guaranteed sea life viewing, head to the Aquarium of the Bay by the pier’s entrance.
