Besides having family that live in the area, we really enjoy the San Francisco area and go here often.

Shopping in America involves, usually, finding hidden shopping Malls, and negotiating designer shops with flunkies on acid inviting you to try this and that. Yes, Market Street has all of this. But what it also does have is shops on the street, people bustling by, and an interesting array of alternatives. It is not catering for the rich or the... More

Shopping, admittedly, is not one of my main things. Market Street is the place to go if you're into that. But there's more... it is a center of the San Francisco feel, too. Lots of little shops that I didn't visit. Fun restaurants. Lots of people smiling, enjoying the feeling by the bay.

Regardless of the front that is put on, Market Street has a fine mixture of old school vintage music stores alongside elegant lingerie and clothing boutiques. I highly recommend this area for a different view of SF that is seperate from contant hippie neighbourhoods.

Lots of shops and lots of homeless. If you need to shop in the daytime or need a little something to eat at lunch or early dinner take your pick. This area can be your center of action but just be ready. Its a long walk from one end to the other.

San Francisco's main shopping thoroughfare, Market Street is home to so many quaint shops that is why I love shopping and walking here. One of my favourite avenues in the world.
