Shop, Dine and Explore the Mission on Muni
Humming with history and hipness, the Mission (or La Misión) is a distinctly diverse SF neighborhood. One of the oldest neighborhoods in San Francisco, the Mission is still youthfully lively, with an array of shops, eateries, and things to do for locals and visitors. The strong Latino, Hispanic, and Caribbean heritage has been the foundation of the Mission, shining through the street murals, parks, landmarks, and small businesses. A Mission Style burrito in Dolores Park (DP as the locals call it) always calls to us.
