Frank lloyd Wright architecture, small gallery and store. I went to a reception here as it is also used for special events because the design is so dramatic and special. Stop in and see it.

This building is so beautiful, and the inside is even more spectacular. There's an amazing sundome and staircase, but the place is closed right now. There may be something happening in the future, but for now, walk by and enjoy!

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
