Ghirardelli Square

Ghirardelli Square, a full city block of 19th century red brick buildings, is a very popular tourist attraction located at the bay waterfront west side just above San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

The buildings are arranged around a "square", with a mermaid statue fountain. You can visit the chocolate store; ice cream sundaes, eat in one of the restaurants or just enjoy the square.

If you are here walk east on Beach St half a block and look for Umbrella Alley, a nice place to take your “Instagram” pictures (fee area).


Near here there are many rental bike/ebike places. From here you can ride along the bay front all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

You can also find here rental small yellow “car” if you want to do motorized tour in the city.
