Union Square is a 2.6-acre (1.1-hectare) public plaza bordered by Geary, Powell, Post and Stockton Streets in downtown San Francisco, California. "Union Square" also refers to the central shopping, hotel, and theater district that surrounds the plaza for several blocks. The area got its name because it was once used for Thomas Starr King rallies and support for the Union Army during the American Civil War, earning its designation as a California Historical Landmark.

Awesome place to visit. There is a parking structure underneath union square. There are stores everywhere within walking distance. There is a five story Macy's store right across union square, there is also a Saks Fifth Avenue on the opposite side. There are a lot of places to eat around there. There is a Cheesecake Factory inside Macy's. If you can't afford spending $1,000 dollars on four pieces of clothing, there is a discount sections on the third floor, it's more up my alley. Overall it's a really nice busy place, there are all kinds of people from all walks of life.

Still an awesome place to walk around and through. Live music from time to time, the big Christmas tree during the holidays. Union square is awesome. Would love it more if the homeless situation was better (lots of homeless people wandering around) but it's not their fault they have no shelter. Definitely a must see place.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to be here during the holidays, so we got to see the place all done up with the ice rink and giant Christmas tree. Really happy feel to this place, it was very easy to stop shopping for a second and just stop and take in the wonderful atmosphere. Probably the closest thing to Manhattan's union square that you'll find on the west coast. Absolutely lovely.

Was a good day today here in SF. On of those rare days when you can appreciate the sunshine and good weather. A day that motivates you to go out and enjoy the day. Landing me in Unione Square today with a great cup of ice coffee and a healthy snack by my side. Come on over to Union Square on a bright sunny day and see for yourself what this square has to offer you too.

I love SF! Rainy today but enjoying every minute. Beautiful square surrounded by great shops and eateries. Very well kept and clean. Two cute Cafes on the square

Another breathing space in the heart of a concrete jungle. Good place to relax and just chill and go people watching on the side. There are regular flea markets or art sale going on here so check those out. A coffee shop is available for your caffeine fix. Be sure to read up on the history of the tower at a small plaque at its base. Great venue for selfies.

So Many things to do around here. Shop, eat, walk, coffee. It’s amazing the Vibe is great. You can literally just sit in the middle of Union Square and just chill. Gallery places are amazing, so many great pieces to admire and learn from . High end stores have the best pieces that are sold out anywhere else, if you are into fashion come shop here !

This visit was to the Cheesecake factory for a late lunch. Be prepared for a wait, but it was worth it. Service was great, good food and drinks and of course the cheesecake. I would recommend using the pay parking as on street parking was scarce.

Great for people watching, eating, cocktail sipping, and lots of shopping. A lot of my favorite stores were in close vicinity to each other. I visited lots of stores while out visiting San Francisco, and if you want to use the street car, the big hop on/hop off bus, or bike rentals, this is the place to start.

The entire area is very nice. There are a lot of stores for shopping; all in a variety of price ranges and categories. Macy's is separated into two stores (men and women), which both offer great views of Union Square. There's also plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby to grab a quick snack or meal. There are also a lot of different hotels to choose from and both major tour buses have stops around the square. I only wish Union Square had more tables in the plaza to just sit and enjoy the view.

A must see when you visit the city. Take in the historic buildings and monuments, take a ride on the Powell Street car, or just sit in the park and have a coffee or espresso. Christmas is a wonderful spectacle every year. Go into Macy's and up the escalators for a great view. If you're hungry go to the top floor and eat at The Cheesecake Factory on the roof and take in a great view of the Square.

Busy part of San Francisco. Tourists or business people will stay here and wonder why people like SF so much. Aside from Fisherman's Wharf, this is the "tourist trap" part of SF assuming you're not shopping for high-end clothing. It can be fun to come on weekends when artists sometimes exhibit their work in the square. Otherwise, this is a good place to avoid once you've seen it and experienced it once.

A sight to behold, every high-end shop I could imagine in one location, surrounding you in Union Square. A fun destination for a wander and some window shopping. We went into Barney's just for fun, so my kids could see what "expensive stuff" looks like. They were mesmerized by the price tags and agog when the sales lady said they sell a purse that costs over $40,000. That had us in awe for a while!!!

This is a beautiful park like space in the centre of downtown San Francisco. A lovely place to eat your lunch on a beautiful day too. You can also view or purchase unique pieces of art that is on display here. On the perimeter there is also a great cafe with lots of outdoor seating so you can sit and absorb the atmosphere

Union Square is a historical and pretty park highlighted on the Barbary Coast Trail self-guided walking tour. Guide books are available at the Tourist Information Center in the very sketchy Bart - Powell Street Station about where the trail begins. There are some neat details: the Maiden Lane off the East side of the park was a home to prostitutes; The woman on the Dewey Monument is a cute rags-to-riches story; there's a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; and the lobby of the Westin St. Francis Hotel is worth wandering into. There's a public restroom and a great coffee shop right in the square.

ساحة الإتحاد (Union) ساحة جميلة، تقام فيها بعض الحفلات الصغيرة، وعروض الشوارع. حول الشارع الكثير من المحلات الشهير فهي كالمنطقة المركزية؛ أهم شارعين تسوق حولها شارع باول وشارع ماركت! وطبعاً الفنادق منتشرة حولها ... تعتبر هي أحد أفضل الأماكن للسائح بالإضافة الى بير 39 (أفضل للعوائل لكثرة الأنشطة والألعاب) I love it. It is a great Plaza where a lot of activities and shows performed here!

Beautiful at night, surrounded by lit up shops and landscaping. Cool and creative heart statues at the corners too. Great for a stroll at night if you're nearby. The weather may be chilly though, so I recommend bringing a jacket.
