Journeys of Discovery: Exploring San Francisco’s Union Square—past and present

Mar 12, 2019

Join Spud Hilton, former San Francisco Chronicle travel editor, as he rediscovers his hometown. Hilton shares insights about the city’s fabled Union Square—the heart of San Francisco since the Gold Rush days. 

Union Square was named in honor of the Civil War-era meetings held in support of the Union cause. Today the San Francisco neighborhood is a magnet for shopping, live theater, and a vibrant dining scene. Hilton also shares his passion for the repurposed Presidio, with its open spaces, sweeping vistas of the Bay, and historic military architecture.
