It’s a really big arch. Right by the water. There are some old train tracks under it. It’s cool looking and a lot of people take pictures there.

We came upon this while walking along the wharf. This is one of many interesting sites nearby. Be sure to check out the sea lions at pier 39.

I enjoyed taking a picure of the Pier 43 Ferry Arch, It is an interesting architectural feature and can be seen by the Pier 39/Fisherman Wharf area.

I hadn’t realised why the arch was so popular to visit until I got there, as there are a lot of historic arches along the waterfront.
Once I was there I realised it is because depending on the angle of your photo, the arch can frame either Alcatraz or the D-Day ship SS Jeremiah O’Brien.
Beautiful sunset pics, worth it for those who like to take photographs.
Young kids wouldn’t appreciate it.
Accessible to most everyone.
Convenient stop before dinner nearby.
