Some fun things to do with adults and children. Fishing off the pier is free with no license required. Lots of shops and casual foodie places. Island Pizza is VERY good....BBQ (Little Piggies) a good spot as well. Cocktail Hour at Il Forniao is terrific....More

The ferry landing is pretty boring. A handful of locals fish off the end. Tourists line up to take the ferry.

A beautiful area to view the San Diego harbour. That an hour or so to wander through the over priced shops and get some great pictures. And easy trip across the bridge.

It’s about 1/2 a mile walk. Easy day. I would recommend you exit the ferry and head towards the Hilton, then use the foot bridge over the road and rail road tracks. It’s a nice view and not that much more of a distance.

Some times during the year there is a free shuttle. Otherwise it is about a half hour or so to walk.
