The home of baseball’s Giants is located a stone’s throw from the San Francisco Bay and gives fans a great on-water experience with McCovey Cove.
Arguably one of the most boat-friendly stadiums in all of sports, the location offers amazing views of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge. Fans often hang out in the cove area in boats in hope of catching one of the many “splash hit” home runs that get launched out of the park. (Over 70 home runs have been hit into the cove, many of them by Barry Bonds). The area even has a scoreboard and replay screens for fans to watch the game.
For fans looking to take the water to the game, the SF Marina Yacht Harbor offers spots for boats to dock. Plus, there's Pier 39, which has food, live music, shopping, and sea lions as well as sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, and fishing. The area around the park has a huge number of restaurants, bars, and other nightlife options, including the Iron Cactus, for Mexican food; Brickhouse Cafe, for grilled specialties; Hard Water, which has original whiskey cocktails; Hog Island Oyster Bar, for fresh seafood; and the 21st Amendment Brewery & Restaurant, which has a big selection of beers and a tasting room.
For even more entertainment, you can check out the Yard at Mission Rock, a pop-up village made from repurposed shipping containers that has local gourmet food and numerous drink options, stores, as well as special events and live music.
