San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf for Crab

It's the beginning of the dungeness crab season in the Bay Area and a great time for some extremely fresh crab. So on an exceptionally beautiful day in the bay we head up to San Francisco's famed Fisherman's Wharf for lunch. We park at Fort Mason and walk toward the wharf with a quick stop at Ghirardelli Square. We eat at Nick's #5 right in the middle of all the bustling seafood vendors for some crab salad and chowder. We work off our lunch with a walk along Hyde Street Pier to see all the various ships.
