We stayed on Union Street while in SF and it's great to be right in the middle of the action. We were especially pleased to find so many eateries around us and that they weren't too packed out.

Right in the city center, union street offers wide variety of shopping (and some dining). Good mix of department malls and stand alone venues. Quite a lot of promotions as well, if you are lucky.

This street virtually cuts across the city. You will find lots of hotels, hostels and many place to stay. If you are into shopping this street is the place for you. It is vibrant in the evening.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
