Over 40 piers cover the waterfront along Embarcadero. The odd numbers are northwest of the Ferry Building and the even ones start on the other side. Most tourists restrict their visit to those along Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39. But take a quiet stroll along Pier 14. It offers spectacular views of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, better known as the Bay Bridge. This western section is about 4.5 miles long and connects downtown San Francisco with Yerba Buena Island.
