The Balmy Alley murals are amazing in their diversity and number; however, if you walk along 24th street and Mission, you will see many more. The whole Latino flavor can be found throughout this neighborhood and the murals are just one aspect. Shop the cheap...More

Any visitor to the SF Mission District must stop here! Lots of murals throughout the area, but Balmy Alley offers them one after another. There's an edgy feel to the art that fits right in with the whole Mission scene. Enjoy! This was a great...More

I must say it is difficult to match and find a similar quality and connect in art work across a lot of countries (except London).

This is a wonderful little alley filled with color and life. It’s not very close to other tourist attractions in San Francisco, but with the great bus connections this city has, its is quite easy to get there. It’s located in the Latin neighborhood and...More

If you are going to the Latino quarter, (Mission Area), then this is a must. It’s part of it and worth stopping for a few photos.

Sure this street art might be Latino inspired. You’re in the Mission District! Much safer feeling than Shannon Street with more murals. A quick stroll to let your burrito digest before you order more food somewhere else.

make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its

city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
