Union Square has been a staple on the West Coast for some time with a rich history of being dedicated after San Francisco’s first mayor John Geary , and the pro-Union rallies during the Civil War. In the 1900′s, this area got a huge upgrade becoming a very popular district.
Some of the main shops in Union Square include department stores such as Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, & Saks Fifth Avenue. For more exclusive brands, Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Tiffany & Co, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Herms, Hugo Boss, and Prada are available.
There is great variety due to the fact that even regular mall outlets such as Old Navy, Forever 21, Anthropologie, Apple Store, United Colors of Benetton, Urban Outfitters, Abercrombie & Fitch, Puma, Gap and American Eagle Outfitters are located just a few blocks down Union Square on Market Street.
After a long day of shopping, you can take a break and check out the French Quarter of Union Square. There are excellent air open restaurants there and cafes to do some quick food shopping or dining with your family and friends. After your meal, take a trip to Theatre Bay Area to catch some performances.
