Shopping in the San Francisco Bay Area

The opportunity to shop in the San Francisco Bay Area is virtually unbounded. With more than 35 malls, hundreds of shopping plazas, centers and squares, hundreds of outlet stores in addition to all the shops, boutiques, galleries and emporiums not in a formal shopping district; if you can't find it here, it probably doesn't exist.

In downtown San Francisco, Union Square is the natural destination for shoppers. With Macy's, Nordstrom, Sak's, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace, Neiman Marcus and more than 100 other exciting stores, what more could you want...?

Unless of course you are looking for bargains, then the outlet malls may be what you seek. The five outlet malls listed in the outlet section, combined, house over 300 outlet stores.
