San Francisco: Shopping Holiday
For shopaholics San Francisco offers some of the best shopping in California. It has a great variety of places to shop. There are up-market department stores around Union Square including Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. Several streets have great boutique shopping such as Union Street and Upper Fillmore Streets, as well as Hayes Valley. Also worth a visit is the impressive Westfield San Francisco Centre on Market Street. This shopping centre has ten levels and boasts around 400 stores, include the well known Bloomingdales and Nordstrom’s. Even the more touristy area of Chinatown and Ghirardelli Square offer some fun shopping in San Francisco. Another idea for shopping in San Francisco is Haight Street (of the 1960s fame) which is now a busy shopping area with some great esoteric shops and fancy vintage clothing boutiques.
