The heart of San FranciscoFlag review
Union Square is the informal gateway to the city. From here, you can walk to major department stores, restaurants and Chinatown. It's ideal for shopping and dining no matter the budget. It also makes a great home base for accessing the cable car turnaround and touring the city. While the waterfront has more family-friendly attractions, Union Square has a lively ambiance (thanks to the clanging cable cars) that even kids will enjoy.
Tips for Families
Being in the hub of the city, Union Square is an ideal place to stay in a hotel. Choose a hotel near the cable car turnaround to make public transportation easily accessible.
