During the gold rush of the mid-1800s, San Francisco was home to people from all four corners of the earth hoping to strike it rich. This diverse population gave the area its unique and colorful flavor. Rich with history, culture, and excitement, San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf & Maritime Park are legendary and definitely a one-of-a-kind experience.
The San Francisco Bay front provides a glimpse into our past by giving us a historical perspective on commerce, trade, exploration, immigration, and military endeavors. Given the diverse foundation upon which San Francisco is built, the area from Fisherman's Wharf to Fort Mason is alive with the echo of days gone by and filled with promises of times yet to come.

Some good basic information of the Wharf and coast. Not enough history of the area...first immigrants, Chinese, etc. Too much uninteresting boat trivia. Didn't acre too much for the play-like quality to some of the narration.
