Financial District and Downtown San Francisco: Where Business and Pleasure Meet
Headquarters to major banks, corporations, and law firms, the Financial District is the place where high-stakes finance is matched by some of the country's tallest and most famous skyscrapers, such as the pyramid-shaped Transamerica building and 555 California Street.
But being San Francisco, nothing can happen without being paired with fabulous food and wine. So you will also find the best restaurants here that attract both business types and young, trendy residents.
The same can be said for the neighboring downtown area, where you will find the wheels of business turning at the Moscone Convention Center, while right next door, area workers and locals relax in the spacious themed gardens of the Yerba Buena Cultural Center. Here you can also follow Market Street through one of San Francisco's most important business corridors and also grab a gourmet meal with a view where the street ends at the Embarcadero. And the best part... it's all a pleasant (flat!) walk, quick Metro or cab ride away from the Sir Francis Drake Hotel.
