The San Francisco Mission District
The Mission in San Francisco, CA was originally a booming Hispanic neighborhood bustling with taquerias, salsa clubs, lively murals and Spanish spoken everywhere. Now the Mission District has transformed into a culturally diverse community with edgy and unique businesses, high tech coffee shops and high caliber multi-ethnic restaurants.
Our San Francisco bed and breakfast inn provides guests with a neighborhood map with over 80 current restaurants, featuring Zagat ratings, food specialties and location near the Inn. Visit the nearby historic Mission Dolores, the oldest building in San Francisco, erected in 1791 to replace the original 1775 Mission destroyed by fire. The adjoining cemetery is the only graveyard in the city and contains many of the original founders of San Francisco. Mission Dolores also contains a wonderful museum.
The Mission in San Francisco, CA neighborhood also is home to more than 600 murals and street art with more being added weekly. From a copy of an original Indian mural that still exists hidden behind the alter of Mission Dolores on Bartlett Street near 22nd Street to alleyways celebrating The Day of the Dead at the beginning of November. Colorful, provocative, unique, these wonderful expressions of neighborhood art bring the streets alive.
