Fodor's Review

It may be one of the city's best-known attractions, but the Wharf is a no-go zone for most locals, who shy away from the tourist crowds, overpriced food, and cheesy shops. If you can't resist a visit, come early to avoid the crowds and get a sense of the Wharf's functional role—it's not just an amusement park replica. Two delights amid the tackiness, both at Pier 45, are the Museé Mécanique, a repository of old-fashioned but still working penny-arcade entertainments,

and the World War II–era sub the USSPampanito.
