We had just had a coffee at Haus and noticed that the Balmy Alley Murals were just a few minutes walk away, so we meandered over to take a look at them.

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
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
