People refer to it as ‘San Francisco’s oldest neighborhood’ – but I just call it the best place in the Bay. The Mission’s Latin influence keeps things colorful and locals cook up the best Mexican Food I’ve ever had.
I’m not really a shopper, more into dark bars, cheap drinks and lazy afternoons in Dolores Park. But a few used record & book shops make their way in to my list. As the yuppies and tech moguls take over many parts of San Francisco, I still feel some punk vibes here. And it’s pretty easy to find a live show most nights of the week.

The Mission was proper buzzin!!! Sat in Dolores park all afternoon and moved on to the bars at night. Having this guide on my phone made my lads holiday a trip to remember.
