Lots of window shopping for beautiful things. Live music and dancing during the whole day. Beautiful architectures and streets.

Union square is an excellent location for shopping and also for just soaking up the San Francisco atmosphere. We shopped all day and then in the evening watched the Chinese New Year Parade pass through so union square was the place to be.
