What to do in Financial District

Financial District - Ferry Building Hotels

The area between San Francisco’s central Financial District and the grand, 19th century Ferry Building is awash with glitzy skyscrapers, plush wine and cocktail bars, and stylish al fresco restaurants serving up locally-sourced Cal-cuisine dishes. Surrounding the Financial District - Ferry Building area, San Francisco’s buzzing Downtown sings with upscale department stores, Art Deco and Beaux-Arts architecture, and a mix of art and heritage museums.

Things to see

Begin your San Francisco morning by visiting the Ferry Building itself, a huge blue-grey Beaux-Arts ferry terminal built in 1898, and crowned by a looming 245 foot-tall clock tower. Inside, you’ll discover a sprawling old-fashioned market place dotted with cafes and bakeries. Three times a week, a farmer’s market takes place outside the Ferry Building, selling everything from fresh Californian tomatoes to fine cheeses. Later, shoppers should visit the Financial District’s adjoining Union Square, a public plaza - speared by a Corinthian column - surrounded by flashy department stores, like Macy’s and Saks. After, amble through the adjacent Chinatown neighbourhood - a labyrinth-like paper lantern-lit mini metropolis of authentic Chinese restaurants - and exit at Telegraph Hill. Here, discover Coit Tower, a huge 210 foot-tall Art Deco marvel decorated with bright wall murals. Finish your day with a trip to San Fran’s 1.7 mile-long flame-orange Golden Gate Bridge, which stretches above the glimmering Golden Gate strait.
