Bordered by Geary, Powell, Post, and Stockton Streets, this 2.6-acre plaza is San Francisco's crown jewel of shopping districts. Union Square is named as such because it was once used for Union Army rallies during the American Civil War, earning it a designation as a California Historical Landmark. Today, it is a major tourist destination that features one of the largest collections of department stores, upscale boutiques, gift shops, art galleries, and beauty salons in the United States. Union Square also offers a vast choice of restaurants, cafés, bakeries, and drinking establishments.
The Financial District is situated on the east side of downtown San Francisco, with its northern edge overlooking William Pereira’s iconic 1972 Transamerica Pyramid and the Jackson Square Historical District. This area has been the business and banking hub of the city since the 1849 Gold Rush, and it's home to the city’s largest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms, banks, and other financial institutions. All six of San Francisco Fortune 500 companies—McKesson, Wells Fargo, PG&E, Gap, Charles Schwab, and Salesforce.com—are located within the district.
