San Fran: Union Square

Updated: Jun 12, 2019

Come to San Francisco this Winter season. Just because you don't have the snow or brisk weather, doesn't mean that you won't feel that warm holiday spirit!

There are plenty of activities to get in the holiday spirit and sightseeing to do:

Stay at The Marker, a hotel with boutique style rooms and spacious suites, located in Union Square and central to shopping, dining, theater and more. From 5 - 6pm, The Marker has a complimentary happy hour allowing guests to mingle in the lobby. Then grab dinner at the on-site restaurant Tratto, for a fresh plate of pasta made in-house.

See the Tobin House, built by the Founder of the San Francisco Chronicle, Michael De Young. Michael purchased two lots adjacent to his property to build identical homes for his daughers, Constance and Helen. However, only one of the houses was completed and the other one was never developed, since Helen decided to live elsewhere.
