If you live near San Francisco or plan on visiting for your 39th, Pier 39 is the perfect spot to celebrate your big day — especially if you book a jaw-dropping venue in the area like this one! If San Francisco isn’t in the cards for your celebration, that doesn’t mean you can’t party like you’re on Pier 39. Hire a few street performers for your party, have a photo backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge for pictures, and maybe even hire a caricature artist to draw all your bday guests!
