If you love the hustle and bustle of the city, Union Square is the place to be. I find myself orbiting around Union Square just a few hours after my plane landed and getting settled in the hotel. I figured the night was still young and I have a few hours to spare before I need to hit the sack. So why not head to Union Square?
Union Square is a shopper's paradise for all price ranges. There are tons of high-end luxury stores as well as good old bargain busters. There is something for everyone. Even if you're not a shopaholic like you think you are, it's still worth going there just to walk around and check out all the different kinds of retail shops. Plus the view is amazing. I sit down on one of the benches in the plaza and just relax in the midst of those towering buildings. It is also a great place for premium people-watching. There's so much activity going on you wouldn't get bored or feel like you're wasting your time even just sitting there. I didn't do any shopping that day. I just wanted to relax and take it all in. I was so overwhelmed with how beautiful San Francisco downtown is and I just wanted to savor every moment of it. This is definitely a place worth-seeing if you're visiting San Francisco.
