Planning a Meeting in San Francisco’s #1 Tourism Destination

While San Francisco is on the top ten list of many planners’ destination bucket lists, there are specific neighborhoods in the “city-by-the-bay” that generally cater to leisure travelers.

Fisherman’s Wharf is one such locale and happens to be San Francisco’s #1 destination year after year. Why might a popular tourist area be ideal for your group (big or small)?

1. There are plenty of off-site meeting and entertainment venues to choose from, so that you can get your group out of the hotel. Attendees can enjoy a California Sunset Cruise aboard Red and White Fleet; take a daytime or evening trip to Alcatraz prison; visit the many historical piers on the Waterfront; and choose from such active adventures as biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, sailing the bay, or embarking on one of many historical walking tours.

2. For pre- and post- meetings, guests can plan extra time in San Francisco to enjoy their own interests attractions, such as: climbing half-way to the stars aboard the iconic Cable Cars; walking into North Beach for a taste of real San Francisco Italian history; checking out the Aquarium of the Bay; exploring Aquatic Park Historic District; visiting the new ExplOratorium; chocolate tasting at Ghirardelli Square; engaging the inner child at Musee Mechanique:historical video game museum; taking in the attractions of Pier 39; or checking out Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

3. It’s easily accessible for individuals as well as groups.

4. Dining options (within walking distance of your hotel) are all over the map, from the city’s freshest seafood and authentic fisherman’s grottos to authentic Italian and continental cuisine. Additionally, both North Beach (“little Italy”) and Chinatown are within close proximity to Fisherman’s Wharf.

5. There’s a reason Fisherman’s Wharf is the most popular destination in one of the world’s favorite cities --- mass appeal and attraction --- so, it won’t be hard to convince prospective attendees to sign up for your meetings!
