Constantly bustling -- people use the square mostly as a space to relax and soak up a bit of sun, and to wallow in the atmosphere created by the surrounding cable cars, hotels and shoppers. Great for people watching! There is free wi-fi provided by the city. Look under the leaves of the greenery in the planters, and you'll find a few power outlets for your laptop.
The area has many live events to attend and there is always something happening to keep you entertained. To really get an experience of partying with the locals this is a must stop on any tour of the city
Great for shopping, people watching, park sitting, and ice skating in the winter!
The shopping zone in SF. Take BART to Powell Street. Walk 2 blocks! Also can take the Cable Car from here to the WHARF!
