It's always being gentrified, always being run-down ...

I left S.F. over 25 years ago, and back then, there was talk of rising rents, people being forced out, drug problems at 16th and Mission Bart stop, etc. It's been a gradual... read more

Mission street, between Market and Cesar Chavez, is really full of trash. And most of the streets around are not much better. Is it cultural, is it the high number of homeless ? And why the City is not i) cleaning seriously the streets with team of workers equipped with brooms ? ii) educating the population ? iii) providing with... More

Get a map of the murals scattered throughout this neighborhood and go and admire this terrific art. Along the way, admire the strange mix of hipsters, immigrants and yuppies. Lots of coffee and good food. Lots of unusual shopping. The hip traffic has moved to Valencia St.

I left S.F. over 25 years ago, and back then, there was talk of rising rents, people being forced out, drug problems at 16th and Mission Bart stop, etc. It's been a gradual, consistent process. In 2017, like other parts of the city, there are now more than ever, a lot of mentally ill people, a lot of poor, a... More

The Mission District is a treat for anyone who loves art, but especially those who love the art of Mexico. I'm an activist, and the history of the struggles of marginalized communities are told on the vivid, passionate murals of the Mission District. Take several hours to walk along 24th Street, then back up Mission Street to Mission Dolores Park.... More

We visited friends that live in the Mission District and spent a lovely afternoon wandering around this wonderful neighborhood and admiring the many murals. There are lots of places to eat and drink as well as some inexpensive shopping opportunities. It appears that the area is becoming gentrified at an alarming pace and, perhaps, in the not too distant future,... More

I felt like I was taking a walk through the culture & history of San Fransisco a walk through the Mission District is a must especially as day turned to "Saturday" night so much energy! There are many options for nightlife and dining not to mention great ice cream shops and bakeries with lines outside. Great way to pass the... More

Area is full of history, various architectures, shops and restaurants. A walking tour is a great way to see this part of the city and enjoy the local offerings. Certain areas seem to be popular for the homeless but we saw no issues

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
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. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
