"Lots of great shopping and people watching" Mission District Tip by karin1972

Mission District, San Francisco: 52 reviews and 128 photos

"The Haight" is a colorful area, which draws in a variety of people. You have your clothing boutiques, coffee shops, head/smoke shops, and then there is the infamous GAP on the corner--LOL. If you are squeemish about seeing multiple-piercings and homeless people, I would suggest staying away. This place is historic for the Hippey movement and has some beautiful victorian houses in the surrounding streets. For a great Middle Eastern eating experience, you may want to check out Kanzaman restaurant, offering belly dancing and hooka smoking.

Address: Haight Street from Stanyan to Lyons
Directions: Area surrounding Valencia and 16th Street

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
