This is a nice area to stroll along. Numerous shops and restaurants but quite a few closed ones as well. There is a shuttle that runs up and down the length of the street with transfers to the zoo and harbor. Worth taking a look

I've seen the cruise ships dock far out. They seem to shuttle the people into land. State street is just opposite Stern's wharf . You'll need to walk about 2.5 blocks till you come to businesses. I could walk it but I... More

I think that's a great idea and it lets you off right where you want to be in SB! Call or email Amtrak for schedule. From Union Station the ride is 2 hours.
