If you plan on visiting the City by the Bay, Ghirardelli Square needs to be on your list of places to visit.
Today, Ghirardelli Square is known for housing an array of upscale shops, fine dining, wine bars, spa facilities and, of course, the infamous Ghirardelli Original Chocolate Manufactory & Ghirardelli Chocolate Marketplace. Located on the beautiful San Francisco Bay just west of Fisherman’s Wharf, it’s already an ideal spot to check out. But, the history of Ghirardelli Square and the ice cream sundaes are why we’re recommending you pay this place a visit. Be forewarned: This destination is heaven for those with a sweet tooth.
