Union Square was later named Union Square because it had hosted a series of conferences on federal unification. The statue of the goddess of victory at the top of the central column of the square was built to commemorate the admiral Dewey who won in Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. In addition to the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde two-wire cable passing through the plaza, all bus lines set up stops near the square. The leisure and shopping recommended plaza is filled with palms, yews and flowers, creating a romantic and cheerful atmosphere.
The most instagrammable places in San Francisco you don’t have to miss!
1) Union Square and the heart of the city.
The main square surrounded by large skyscrapers where everything flows fast, but there is always time to take a look at the hearts here hosted as a symbol of a city where love knows no barriers.
2) The Powell Street trams
A few steps further on you will find the historic tram station (or Cable Cars) on Powell Street.
3) Pier 39: the pier and the sea lions.
4) City Hall
5) Alamo Square – Painted Ladies
This was one of my absolute favorite stages. The Victorian-style houses throng much of the city and look like real doll houses.
6) Lombard Street: the most tortuous road in the world.
7) Twin Peaks: one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city.
8) Haight Ashbury: the district of the Summer of Love.
9) Golden Gate Bridge
The incredible and gigantic symbol of the city, as well as the longest suspension bridge in the world.

At first I thought it was a big square. Later I found out that it was completely fooled by the name...there is no big park at home...
