The Park is a local's favorite green scape destination for relaxing on the green and picnicking or just chilling out. Depending upon the day and the time you'll likely see the assemblage of folks who call San Francisco their own. ...

Not a destination, nothing special to see, but for a picnic lunch with a nice view of the city, I don't think it can be beat. Bring a blanket and chill! We were there on a Hallowe'en Saturday afternoon, and the lines for the toilets were daunting! Be sure to stop nearby for a superior ice cream, wait for the... More

In the 60's it was the Haight. Today it is the park and the streets that connect it in the Mission. After visiting here walk over to 16th and Valencia.

Before heading to Mission Chinese, we walked over to this park to kill time and people watch. The park was filled with families, friends, hula hoopers, dogs, pot dealers, homeless people, young, old, every ethnicity, a very large mix of people hanging out in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday. If we lived in San Francisco, I could... More

Dolores Park is one of San Francisco's best destinations. It's got an amazing view of the city and has recently undergone renovation to make it even more beautiful and scenic. It can get quite crowded on sunny days but that is part of its charm.

Take a walk in the beautiful neighborhood of Mission, get yourself something to eat, take your portable music player and chill as much as you can. Especially in a sunny day, you will see hundreds of people to hook up with, take your time and enjoy.

Bring your camera, grab a sandwich at BiRite, Rhea's, or Guerrero Market and enjoy a nice afternoon here. However, it is a super popular spot on sunny days and it gets crowded.

We perched onto the steep, grassy knoll facing the city skyline. Behind us, a peppy indie band played while a girl yo-yo'ed to their beat. In front of us ensued a sprawling melting pot of randomness...an older man in his sixties snoozing on his back. A girl throwing a frisbee while her great dane trotted about. An artist painting a...

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
