Union Square lies between San Francisco’s Chinatown and the Tenderloin neighborhood. It is the retail and cultural hub of the city and the best way for your group to get there is to rent a San Francisco charter bus or arrange a door-to-door shuttle service for easy pick up and drop off.
Union Square is home to the city’s largest collection of luxury, department, and boutique shopping. It’s an incredibly popular tourist attraction throughout the year, and it also boasts an incredible selection of hotels, art galleries, salons, and theaters. The diversity of the square and round-the-clock activity are cornerstones of San Francisco’s cosmopolitan identity.
The center of the Union Square neighborhood is home to a park that is bordered by Geary, Powell, Post, and Stockton Streets. The square was built in 1850 and originally used as a gathering spot for pro-Union demonstrations on the eve of the American Civil War. It was named by San Francisco’s first mayor, John Geary, in remembrance of the pro-Union rallies. If you visit the park today, you’ll find it the center of a vibrant and diverse community, as well as home to many of the city’s political and cultural gatherings.
There are several parking garages within walking distance of Union Square, but each will charge a fee and can’t 100 percent guarantee the safety of your vehicle. Because of this, it’s highly recommended to explore options for a bus rental in San Francisco when visiting Union Square. Depending on the size of your group, planning ahead to arrange a coach bus, minibus, mini coach, school bus, or door-to-door shuttle service is a great way to ease the difficulty of transportation in the city.
Shopping is one of the major attractions in Union Square. Almost every fashion label imaginable has a presence in the square including H&M, Macy’s, LUSH, and Cuyana. There’s also a vibrant food scene in the neighborhood, with fine dining options such as Ayala, Farallon, The Rotunda, and The Oak Room Restaurant.
