    The very best entertainment for any age. Every time I travel to SF I find time to visit the Exploratorium because there is so much to do with my granddaughters and I could never finish exploring the hands-on science exhibits that enthrall all of us. Good for ALL ages. I cannot say enough about the learning that happens while you spend the day. There is even a cafe. Easily take a day or two or .... Great place! Nice people working there.

    Iconic and nice square, nice terrace to have a break as well, surrounded by clothing shops such as Macy's, we loved it here.

    What a wonderful gem! Great space to spend an evening! Ice cream sundae great to share. Relaxing fountain with the repurposed space. Make sure to have your layers on — very windy!

    This is a lovely shopping mall.
    What makes it unique is by far the spiral escalators, which are an attraction on their own.

    The farmers market runs for four days a week outside of the main area of the ferry terminals. Otherwise there are occasional stalls .

    The Center is in the midst of Japantown which is not big but most cities don't have any Japantown. Restaurants, food stores and other places. I loved a general store, like a Japanese Dollar General that had lots of things I would not find elsewhere. Not sure I would make this an excursion but definately worth the detour if you are nearby, and you likely will be nearby. It is central.

    Nordstrom is an excellent chain and a great place to shop. The San Francisco shop is downtown and in a nice old building. Worth a look.

    Independent bookshop with quite a history, since the fifties of the last century, really enjoyable to browse through the various bookshelves.

    The centre is huge and I believe has well over 100 shops inside. Good for entertainment as well. Some nice restaurants also.

    Kind of old fashioned these days, this is a classic department store on Union Square. 8 floors or so of shopping. It was quite the mad house on Black Friday. They have a discount store on the 8th floor that reminds me of a Walgreens, would skip that. SantaLand is on floor seven. Both designer and more affordable clothes and housewares spread throughout. Some nice deals in each of the clearance sections. They have a pretty good, but crowded food court.

    I enjoyed a nice shopping trip to Nieman Marcus in San Francisco. It is close to Union Squrae. Since its the holiday season, they were starting to put up their holiday decoartions. Staff is nice.

    This open to the public flower market housed was more than I was expecting. We enjoyed an hour walking around and seeing the large variety of cut and potted flowers for purchase. I was a little disappointed that the cost for retail sale was more than at my local florist , but the variety greatly exceeded what the florist stocks. I understand everything costs more but was expecting a slightly better price. Definitely a place to go if you are looking for something specific both in flowers, vases/vessels, and ribbon - They even had black Calla lilies!

    This mall definitely wins most improved award. On a Sunday afternoon the mall is crowded and vibrant. Mostly mainstream Mall stores, but a few unusual places. If you're into pokémon, there's an entire store filled with pokemon. The gadget store has the best selection of phone mounting devices I've ever seen, including amazon. And the food court, although almost exclusively Asian food, was decent. The mall appears to be clean and all of them all patrons are wearing masks, even though they don't have to.
