Haute 5 Places to Shop in San Fran: Retail Therapy for the Holidays

Santana Row


Since you’re already on that side of town, a trip to Santana Row, located just south of Valley Fair, is definitely in order. The combination of high-end boutiques sharing space with multimillion-dollar lofts and condominiums, luxury spas, and a 213-room hotel make it one of the unique destinations that shoppers adore. This is where you want to go to satiate your fix for Burberry, Donald J. Pliner, Furla, and Ferragamo. And if you wait a few more days, you can attend the final Tuesday of “Shop, Enjoy & Give” Holiday Wine & Dine Around benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank. A $20 ticket gets you food and wine tastings from Santana Row shops and restaurants, a signature wine glass, and exclusive holiday shopping discounts.
