The Mission District: San Francisco's Hip Melting Pot
To experience the diversity and creativity of San Francisco through the eyes of a local, there’s no better neighbourhood to start in than The Mission. This colourful district is loud and proud about its eclectic roots, and you’ll see the locals passion for their heritage and neighbourhood everywhere from their artisanal food stops to their bold wall murals. It would be impossible to choose your favourite dish in The Mission, but your local will take you to food trucks, bakeries and taquerias where you can certainly try! And if the explosion of flavours and cuisines you’ll find here isn’t enough, you’ll also discover the history and personality of this neighbourhood through its renowned street art, which tells the story of The Mission and its locals in vibrant graffiti, painstakingly painted murals and riots of colour!
