This is the famed Union Square area of San Francisco, filled with fancy shopping and eateries. It is a very safe area, always filled with people: tourists, families, and young adults of all different ethnicities. There is a small park in the middle of Union Square, perfect for sitting with a cup of coffee and people watching. This is the perfect area for someone that likes to be in the middle of everything.

Union Square is a shopping paradise - if you like things on a large scale. If you are a designer Diva or gentleman, this is your mecca. Chanel, Gucci, Tiffany, Barney's, Saks, Cartier are just a few of the glitzy names you will discover here. Also, there is the legendary Gumps; the museum/dealer in beautiful wares. Aside from these BIG stores, some of the best highlights can be found on the many tiny alleyways.
