MISSION DISTRICT’s best
The action is centered at Mission and 24th streets, but radiates out in all directions.  
Getting here by public transportation:  There are two BART stations in the neighborhood.  One at 16th Street/Mission Street and the other at 24th Street/Mission Street. 
Parking is particularly difficult.  Some streets permit parking in the middle of the street on certain days. 

A melange of Mexican, Central American, and other Latino heritages, this historically Hispanic area has been undergoing big-time change.  Though it still seems to have an atmospheric taqueria on every corner, it has seen an influx of trendy shops, bars, and restaurants.  Do be on the lookout for the numerous murals that decorate the neighborhood walls.  Mission and 24th streets projects a south-of-the-border attitude, while Valencia Street leans more to the young and hip with its peppering of cafes, bookstores, and vintage-clothing shops. 
     For a compact tour, begin at Mission Dolores (16th/Dolores streets), stroll east on 16th Street to Valencia Street, then south to 24th Street, then left/east to the 2800 block. 
     These are the main sections of this very busy, very large section of town:
          MISSION STREET/24th STREET
          VALENCIA STREET CORRIDOR
               16th STREET
               18th STREET
