Union Square is one of the most exciting places to visit in San Francisco. There's always something to do in Union Square; shop 'til you drop, ride the world-famous cable cars, watch the street performers or attend an outdoor concert, just to name a few. Union Square hosts the very best shopping in San Francisco, with luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co nearby the major department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's.
Union Square is close to the cable car turnaround, where you can hitch a ride to see the city and visit other neighborhoods in open-air comfort. Of course, it isn't just all cable cars and shopping. Union Square is close to several playhouses and museums too. Walk over the Museum of Modern Art, just a few blocks away or take a stroll down artsy Maiden Lane. You'll find many fine art galleries nearby where you can browse artwork from local and international artists. Union Square is especially charming at Christmastime when there's a tree-lighting ceremony, lots of lights and carolers.
