San Francisco Neighborhoods

The Mission

The Mission District

With a huge variety of unique tourist attractions, awesome events all year long and an amazing culinary scene, San Francisco is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Outside of the city in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, you will find a huge variety of places to visit like Napa Valley Wine Country, Silicon Valley, Monterey, Lake Tahoe and more. However, within the city, you will find an amazing number of distinct areas, each with their own feel and style. As you travel from place to place, you will be able to see the unique cultural influences that are represented in each of the neighborhoods of San Francisco. From the Castro to North Beach, each neighborhood holds an interesting piece of San Francisco history. 

One of those neighborhoods, which is a must-see for any visitors to the city, is The Mission District, also known as “The Mission” Located near Portrero Hill, The Castro and Haight-Ashbury, the popular San Francisco neighborhood gets its name from Mission Dolores, a California Mission Chapel that dates back to 1776. It is the oldest building that is still standing in San Francisco despite the many natural disasters like the San Francisco Earthquake in 1906. 

The Mission is one of the most lively neighborhoods in San Francisco. The streets are lined with amazing restaurants, fun bars, cool shops and more. If you are looking a great place to grab some food or enjoy some San Francisco nightlife, it is busy almost every day of the year. The Mission is one of the most recognizable areas in the city, with cultural influences of Latin and Mexican culture all around from impressive murals to the various shops and restaurants.
