To be honest I have seen big shopping malls and skyscraper, but seeing them all so close to each other and some of the building having great look. In total it was good experience just roaming around the place.

This area is a must for shoppers and for folks who enjoy good eats and drinks. You can walk it, but at night there can be some crazy characters around. Use caution.

Great connector from Market place to GG park. Head towards the bay and you will fine the market and ferry building. A great location for food and people watching. Don't no y we don't have a review page for it.

Wonderful Street....from the shopping to the great hotels and history of this great city! Make your way to the Ferry Building at its end, have some oysters during happy hour at the waterfront restaurant right next door!

The area is very populated and has most of the national chains, except you'll pay more for everything because it's SF. There are a lot of family run restaurants. And you can get on the cable car at Market and Powell Streets to go north towards Fisherman's Wharf

It is difficult to avoid this area but there are most major brand shops, unless it is sale time there generally aren’t many discounts but for UK visitors at the moment he exchange rate feels like a big discount anyway.

A lot of energy and a great vibe, definately a buzzing part of town - particularly around 3rd or 4th Street. All kinds of shopping options and food places. There is no shortage of people watching opportunities. However, noticed on the last trip that there was an unusual number of scary crazy people out (not just the regular crazy). That... More

The BART takes you here, as does the cable car. There are tons of retail stores and places to eat. There's also a mall with a great food court (Westfield San Francisco), so if you're looking for something quick to eat it's worth a stop. Easily accessible, great people watching and lots of shopping.

Lots of stores and it is near many museums and restaurants. You can catch the cable cars here too. It is a central location to start exploring San Francisco. Lot's of traffic and many one way streets around there. Better to WALK and/or take all the public transportation - which is excellent - and leave your car parked for your... More
