Why you should visit

Pier 14 offers some of the best views of the city & the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge. Stroll across the entire pier & then take a seat to peer at the landscape. Water on one side, the city on the other. It's absolutely magnificent. Great for nature shots, cityscapes, selfies, meditation, & more!

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Bay Bridge is 4.5 miles long & averages a daily traffic of 270,000 vehicles? 

How to find Pier 14

Pier 14 is located a short walk from the Ferry Building. If you're standing outside the Ferry Building, walk in the direction of the large bow & arrow sculpture — the sculpture is called Cupid's Span by Claes Oldenburg & Coosje van Bruggen. I was initially walking toward Cupid's Span, but lost steam & walked down Pier 14 instead. Pretty happy with my find. :]
