We went o Union Square, which is the shopping district of San Francisco. We enjoyed seeing the Christmas Tree for 2020.

Having been to Union Square the previous year we knew what to expect and weren’t let down. Well kept area and very good shopping.

Another October Visit We were staying just at the edge of Union Square for some meetings for my wife, in October, and I had the opportunity to explore the Square again. Much of the construction, which I had last encountered, was done, though not all of it. The corner of Stockton and Geary Streets were still a mess, but less so, than previously. Union Square had nice new plantings, and the existing trees seemed to be in full leaf, and looking healthy. On this trip, there was not a concert, or event, and just folk sitting in the sun, and taking a break from their day. It looked like the two restaurants/coffee shops had reopened, and the bicycle concession, near Geary and Powell was open too. The Hop-on-Hop-off bus hawkers were quite active, and loading tourists onto their busses, but the rest of the near-by activity, seemed to only be from those basking in the warm Autumn sunshine. Union Square looked as good, as I have seen it in many years - maybe some day, all of the construction will be complete?

I couldn't understand what the high prices were of the hotels around Union Square, thinking it was a must see while in San Fran but to my disappointment, it was crowded, filthy, and had negative aura all around the area. I walked around San Fran close to the bridge and the market, now that was something to see. I really enjoyed the walk, the energy, and learning the history of the area. I highly recommend a hotel or Band B away from the crowd, then you can Uber or walk to where you wanna go to explore.

Union Square is the city center which has quite a lot of good shopping options. There are many hotels and restaurants in the vicinity. I didn't see as many homeless people as I had feared (most of them were along Market). The square isn't a beautiful sight to behold. Just a nice place to watch people go by either living their lives or vacationing like you and I. Chinatown isn't too far and deserves a visit.
