About the Neighborhood

The Mission is often warmer and sunnier than other parts of San Francisco as its geographical location insulates it from the fog and wind from the west.

The Mission is a popular neighborhood for tourists and locals alike. It is home to many distinct sub-districts and communities. Dolores Street is famous for Victorian mansions and the popular Dolores Park. There are three main commercial zones: Mission Street, the Valencia corridor, and Calle 24 all are known for their restaurants, bars, galleries, murals, and vibrant street life. Source: Wikipedia

Fun Fact: Re-discovered in 2004, the first Mission mural covers the entirety of the rear wall of the Mission Dolores church, behind the historic wooden altar. It was eclipsed in the year 1796 by an impressive baroque-style relief sculpture shipped from San Blas, Mexico called a reredos. This reredos continues to stand as the backdrop to the mission altar and has concealed the wall painting for over 200 years. Source: Found SF
