San Francisco

14 of 15

What PPS Says: San Francisco is well on its way to become
one of the best waterfronts in North America. It has something for everyone,
from long beaches and natural walkways, to local destinations like the Ferry
Terminal—with its growing and vibrant market—to the tourist destinations of
Fisherman’s Wharf.

What We Like: Even the most blasé urbanites will heed the bark
of the sea lions and stroll the waterfront on their lunch hour, looking out
toward Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. And the waterfront will only
improve when the Exploratorium, the innovative science and art museum,
relocates to the waterfront in 2011, in between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building. The result: a unified, walkable, shoppable, enjoyable waterfront.
