This is a peaceful area which is ideal for relaxing and watching the day to day life of the local people.
The district has a special touch from the areas that surround it; Japantown to the East, Fillmore Jazz District to the South and Pacific Heights with its huge mansions to the North.
If you are looking for a good place to shop, Fillmore Street is the right choice. It’s an eclectic shopping street in which you can find luxury items alongside second-hand ones.
Where to Go
Although Fillmore Street is several kilometres long, the area that is most commonly frequented by San Francisco locals is the area that goes from Union Square towards the bay.
If you would like to take a quiet walk, you can begin at Chestnut Street, going up Fillmore Street and finishing by walking along Union Street.
