About Union Square@headingTag>
Union Square refers to the central shopping, hotel, and theater district that surrounds the plaza for several blocks. Interestingly enough, the plaza was used for rallies and support for the Union Army during the Civil War, which not only contributed to the naming of the Square, but also earned its designation as a California Historical Landmark. Union Square offers world-class shopping, coupled with grand hotels, intimate inns, off-Broadway and single-act theaters, which all contribute to the area’s unique, 24-hour character.
