Score (Perfect 10 out of 10!)

Union Square San Francisco is the Bay Area’s premier shopping destination. Not an actual shopping center, per se, but a district of flagship stores, designer boutiques, fashionable retail, and luxury hotels surrounding the Union Square park.


Many department stores have flagships around Union Square, including Macy’s and the Macy’s Men’s Store. In addition, the Bay Area’s only Saks Fifth Avenue (at 384 Post St.) and Saks Men’s Store (at 220 Post St.). Don’t miss the Rotunda in Neiman Marcus along with its high-end fashions. Plus, some favorites, like the Diesel flagship store (at 101 Post St.), Kenneth Cole (at 166 Grant Ave.), and H & M (at 150 Powell St. and 150 Post St.).


There is no shortage of sit-down restaurants and on-the-go eateries in the district. For outside dining with spectacular views, try the Cheesecake Factory atop Macy’s. For a fantastic breakfast, try Sears Fine Food at 439 Powell Street. For California-Italian cuisine, try Kuleto’s at 221 Powell Street.


Parking is best found at one of the local parking garages. Under Union Square itself is the world’s first underground parking garage, but expect to pay a premium. Many hotels also offer parking, but at wide-varying prices.


Union Square is located in the heart of San Francisco CA. It is best served by the Powell Street BART and MUNI stations.
