The street art in San Francisco is noticeably more political and thought-provoking than its counterparts in other US cities. Nowhere is that more evident than Clarion Alley. I went on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and saw a few artists at work on new murals.

I went to the Mission District and strolled through several streets. One of them Clarion Alley has many beautiful murals. Some are really beautiful and colorful, express enjoyment of life, others look dark and express pessimism. It seems that the pictures were sometimes painted over....More

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural

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
