    The overall location is quite vibrant and joyful which allows spending high-quality time. It is cheerful and full of tourists. The region includes popular and picturesque piers, malls, and shopping outlets like this nice marketplace.

    If you like chocolate, this is the place for you. There are other shops and restaurants too, plus a lovely lookout towards the historic ships and ocean.

    Union Square was four blocks down from my hotel, and was useful for retail and dining purposes. There is plenty of choice, but tailored more to the mid to luxury budget range.
    I used Macy's for shopping and the Cheesecake Factory for dining.

    This is a lovely shopping mall.
    What makes it unique is by far the spiral escalators, which are an attraction on their own.

    Wasn’t quite what we were expecting but we had fun nonetheless. A decent assortment of shops, lots of restaurants, but dingy and stuffy. Some shops had good prices while others were very high. Daiso was probably the most fun place. Worth an hour or two visit if Japanese shops and food is of interest.

    The centre is huge and I believe has well over 100 shops inside. Good for entertainment as well. Some nice restaurants also.

    This mall definitely wins most improved award. On a Sunday afternoon the mall is crowded and vibrant. Mostly mainstream Mall stores, but a few unusual places. If you're into pokémon, there's an entire store filled with pokemon. The gadget store has the best selection of phone mounting devices I've ever seen, including amazon. And the food court, although almost exclusively Asian food, was decent. The mall appears to be clean and all of them all patrons are wearing masks, even though they don't have to.

    A shopping mall downtown. It has not come back from Covid and the decline of retail, even though the design is pretty and it is a good refuge when the weather is bad. Maybe someday...

    Laurel Village is a standard for the locals who live in this area. Roughly, the stores are:

    Food: Bryan's and Cal-Mart, both grocery stores with a spectacular array of produce and gourmet foods. A second Bryan's for fresh fish and gourmet prepared foods, A.G. Ferrari pastas, sauces and prepared foods, Noah's Bagels.

    Coffee shops: Starbucks, Peets and a non-chain cake and pastry shop.

    A good book store, some banks, Gap, Imaginarium, the most excellent Papyrus for cards and stationary, a shoe store for children, a Walgreens, a five & dime everything store, and a wine shop.

    A block up is Sacramento Street with upscale boutiques for women's, men's and children's clothing, and lots of furniture and antique shops, a number of nice restaurants and a movie theater. It is a shopping street in a residential area.

    Still hanging on in the middle of the general decline. The Target store is still a good place to shop and the multiplex theater is a good place to see a show. There is a food court with locally-based restaurants. This downtown mall is well-placed when San Francisco revives as people come back to work.

    We were in the Fisherman Wharf area so wandered over to Anchorage Square which is nearby. There are some shops such as Sunglass Hut and Anchorag Liqour. There are places, primarly the fast food restaurant type.

    Personal attention from the sales people if you visit. Sorry their online service seems to be spotty, but if visiting San Francisco, you should stop by if you want to visit a San Francisco institution. In the heart of Chinatown. Wok prices are reasonable and high quality, made in the USA. I bought my first Wok here 40 years ago and it hasn't changed much. Old one still going strong but I needed one with a handle.

    Very sad to see most businesses closed. There were only two restaurants open. The rest was all shut down, boarded up. You could so so much with it. Had chowder at The Chowder House, good.
