The Holiday Festival of Lights may be located at the tourist favorite Fisherman’s Wharf, but during the holidays the local San Francisco people know this is the place to celebrate the season. With an incredible display of lights on the facades of buildings as well as decorations along the inner and outer lagoon, you literally walk into the spirit of the season.

Not only does this area boast an impressive Christmas tree and lights, it also is a great place to get your shopping done with four major shopping outlets at your disposal.
