Embarcadero Center

Shopping in the Commercial District

The Embarcadero Center offers some of the best shopping in San Francisco. With over 125 retail shops densely packed into five blocks, you can spend hours wondering if you can find clothes to match the color of the shoes you just bought. It was originally designed to be a "city within a city," and the lively crowd that descends on the weekends is never disappointed with the Embarcadero Center's commercial frenzy. The Embarcadero Center also has a cineplex and dozens of restaurants so that you can cool your heels after hours and hours of shopping. While some may never want to leave this commercial center, remember that you are but a stone's throw away from even more shops on Union Square and Market Street.
