Once a ghetto, the Mission is now probably the most popular district in San Francisco. Walking through the Mission is like walking through a living book. Every corner tells its own story, every street is pulsing with its own heartbeat.
The Mission is famous for its murals, big colorful paintings all over the walls, which show the artistic side of San Francisco. Very different artists from all over show there skills in the small streets of the Mission.
Although the first impression of the Mission is hardly a good one, due to the chaos that obviously dominates the streets, everyone loves this dynamic district after only a few days. So much power flows through its veins and sucks you into a crazy, open-minded and ambivalent world full of music, laughter, food and people all mixed together in a fancy huddle, building its own culture.
One central place of the Mission is Dolores Park, the place to be for everyone on a sunny afternoon to relax, listen to music, eat Bi-Rite ice-cream or home brought pic-nic, show off dancing skills, play with puppies, check out girls as well as boys until the fog devours the city. Everyone is welcomed to this almost festival of chilling pleasure.
