San Francisco has many places to shop – but there is nowhere more premier and exciting than Union Square. Union Square is in the heart of San Francisco and attracts millions of people every year to its stores, restaurants and hotels. The public plaza received it’s name because during the American Civil War it was used as a place to hold rallies in support of the Union Army. The array of boutique stores, high end shopping, restaurants and hotels make it a must see for anyone visiting San Francisco. Despite it’s history, by the 1970s and 80s the square had become run down. This all changed as a large scale renovation transformed the entire square and made it the shopping epicenter of San Francisco. Within a three block radius of Union Square are six different department stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and Barneys New York. The area itself is also home to many luxury retailers such as Gucci, Loui Vuitton, Dior Homme, Tiffany & Co, Chanel and Prada. Willams-Sonoma, Victoria’s Secret and Apple also call Union Square home.
While Union Square is known and loved for the endless array of shopping options it is not the only thing that attracts tourists and locals alike to the area. Many theaters are located in and around Union Square. TIX Bay Area, a ticketmaster outlet, is even located directly in the middle of Union Square. The centrality of Union Square gives it another appeal as part of a larger exploration of San Francisco. SOMA (South of Market) is connected to Union Square by the cable car. Just due Northwest is Nob Hill – with its beautiful homes and incredible views of the city up it’s hills. Chinatown is just Northeast, full of attractions on its own. Nearby is Belden Place, San Francisco’s French Quarter – home to open air french cafes and restaurants. Union Square also is part of the legendary Barbary Coast Trail, which connects many of San Francisco’s finest landmarks. Union square is easily accessible by Cable Car – another must see attraction of the city. Union Square is a perfect place to start or end any day in San Francisco.
