No matter what time of year you visit, you can get all your shopping done in Union Square.

Union Square is one of the city’s most popular thoroughfares, and is home to a variety of activities. Explore its many boutique shops for that perfect decorative accent or souvenir, and make your way through the numerous art galleries and theatres immediately adjacent to the square. This is also the place to people-watch while enjoying a cup of coffee at a café. Just 2.7 km west of Union Square is Haight Street, which is both a street and part of The Haight, a district made popular by hippies in the 1960s. This is the spot to find vintage clothing shops and the Haight Street Market, which offers fresh, locally sourced produce.

A long day of shopping and eating will no doubt leave you in need of some rest. A 5-star hotel in San Francisco should do the trick. We recommend a trip to the in-house spa, where you can extract toxins with a soothing body wrap, or relax under the sure touch of a Swedish massage therapist. You’ll feel refreshed and ready for an evening out on the town, whether that involves a show at the San Francisco Symphony or additional shopping in the upscale Marina district.

Your San Francisco vacation will be off to a great start when you book
