  • Dine: Nosh on cuisines from across the globe without needing your passport when you visit the Excelsior! From pupusas to pancit, “dope coffee”, Dutch crunch and everything in between, discover your next hidden gem (and go-to spot) in the Excelsior.  

  • Explore: The Excelsior boasts some of the best views of the City, but the views aren’t the only thing to explore. Home to the second largest park in the City, John Mclaren Park, is the perfect place to picnic, hike or walk. Bring the little ones to the Excelsior Playground for a family-fun-filled day. Or admire the incredible murals across the neighborhood that perfectly capture its diversity, vibrancy and history.
