Latin Flair and Eclectic Culture

Old-school taquerias, local gourmet ice cream shops (don’t miss Bi-Rite or Humphrey Slocombe), and the Bay Area’s hippest new restaurants all call the Mission district home. On a bright sunny day, you’ll find the locals hanging in Dolores Park, soaking up the sun and downtown views. Mission Dolores, the neighborhood’s namesake, still stands. Built in 1776, it survived two of the largest earthquakes in Bay Area history, making it the heart of the oldest district in San Francisco.
