The Mission District

The Mission District has turned into the place to be for young people, artists, activists and people just looking to experience culture. The district has so many different businesses for everyone to enjoy: cafes, thrift stores, produce markets, used book stores, trendy restaurants and boutiques. The area is filled with things to do from enjoying a cup of coffee while people watching to taking in the area’s history and rich Latin culture. (best part is it’s right off the 16th st/Mission BART stop)
