Downtown is the quintessential concept of San Francisco for the thousands of tourists who descend here with great regularity. At the heart of it all, Union Square, recently renovated and restored, is a delightful rendezvous where you can take in the sights and sounds of San Francisco, from the clanging cable cars to the sidewalk entertainment in a year-round holiday atmosphere. This neighborhood is home to Broadway-esque theaters, fine dining venues, the elegant St. Francis Hotel, art galleries and the ultimate shopping experience. The City’s only Frank Lloyd Wright building is here, now home to the Xanadu Gallery. The historic City of Paris department store with its famous rotunda and magnificent stained-glass ceiling still reigns in its current iteration as Neiman Marcus. Downtown is convenient to some of the finest cultural opportunities around.
