Also know as the “FiDi," the Financial District neighborhood of San Francisco is aptly named for an abundance of modern and historic buildings that house headquarters of corporations like Charles Schwab, Gap Inc., Visa, the 12th district of the Federal Reserve and more. However, this area is not all work and no play. Shopping areas like Embarcadero Center and Crocker Galleria cater to business shoppers and travelers staying at downtown hotels. By virtue of all the businesses in the area, there are also plenty of cocktail bars and dining destinations, although it can sometimes seem like a ghost town on weekends. The Financial District is home to the iconic Transamerica Pyramid (closed to public tours) and California's oldest restaurant, the Tadich Grill, first opened in 1849.
