"MISSION Mission is the hot..." Mission District Tip by miaou

Mission District, San Francisco: 52 reviews and 128 photos


<font color=blue><b>MISSION</b></font> Mission is the hot place to be (not to mention it receives the most sunshine of all SF’s neighborhoods.) so don’t miss out on this neighborhood Once deemed as one of the poorest neighborhoods in SF, now it’s hot property. The community base is Latin, and it comprises not only Mexicans but other Latinos like Peruvians and El Salvadorians. There is no mistake, however, they all join forces to celebrate their culture and they certainly eat well. <font color=purple><b>One thing you should check out in the Mission are the murals.</b></font> These murals have come to serve as a vehicle to communicate messages about community and global events. You can find some on between 21st and 22nd Streets on Mission, Barlett and Capp St or take a mural tour. Recommended. Contact (415) 285-2287. $10 adult, $8 college students, $2 for anyone under 18.
<font color=green><b> The best spot in the Mission is Valencia 16 and 17th Streets.</b></font>
Heaps of restaurants, more vintage stores than boutiques and the nightlife is excellent.

Directions: Area surrounding Valencia and 16th Street

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
