“The Embarcadero” is the rather grand moniker of the roadway lining San Francisco’s eastern waterfront. It begins below the Oakland Bay Bridge, winds past the old Ferry Building, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf, finally ending at Pier 45.
Along the way, one has views of many San Francisco landmarks including Coit Tower and Alcatraz Island. The BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) can be easily accessed at the Embarcardero Station southeast of the Ferry Building.
It’s an easy reference point: wander west in San Francisco and eventually you’ll land on the Embarcadero. Further still? Wear a swimsuit.9 Comments
