San Francisco...BY FAR.

Union Square alone is better than anything you'll find in Boston, IMO.

San Francisco is WAY more cosmopolitan that anythng you'd find in Boston. Union Square may even exceed Rodeo Drive. I've never even heard of Boston having good shopping. I'd compare San Francisco with New York or Beverly Hills. I'd compare Boston with Atlanta or Houston.

I've never thought of any of those cities as having upscale shopping and I consider that a good thing. The best shopping is the kind that most people can afford. San Francisco seems like it would have cool stores to shop at.

Why do complete boobs who have not a clue about what they are talking about feel compelled to chime in?

I live in the greater Boston area and have also worked in downtown Boston for may years. I have shopped and dined in Boston many, many times through the past 25 years.
I have also visited San Franciso 7 or 8 times in my life on business and vacation. I have not been back to SF in almost 10 years though and therefore I do not feel that I can answer this question.

All I can say is that you cannot go wrong with either choice for upscale shopping.

Never been to Beantown, so its hard to say. But as a SF resident the city has very good shopping. Union Sq, Westfield on Market, Haight, Union street, Mission. etc, North Beach.
