Whether it is art galleries, dance classes, street food, historic buildings, Mission District is a feast for the eyes and soul! You can easily spend half a day in the Mission District. With Latino roots dating back to the original Mission 'Dolores' built in 1776, this area has managed to escape the gentrification of San Francisco and has remained vibrant, colourful with a dash of hipster. The area is is essentially an outdoor art gallery with many murals, old and new, most famous is the Women's Building on 18th Street. However, start your experience at Balmy Alley dating back to the 1980s and inspired by Human Rights violations in Central America. En-route to the Women's Building (18th Street) you will pass many taquerias to keep your energy levels up for a day of walking. Stop in at the eclectic Paxton Gate (824 Valencia St) where you’ll find curios and oddities of all descriptions, for your quirkiest of tastes and certainly worth a browse. If you need as rest, the Mission-Dolores Park (Dolores St &, 19th St) has famed City views and a favorite of locals. Clarion Alley is a small but worthwhile collection of murals ( between Mission and Valencia Streets and 17th and 18th Streets).
