I spent some time on a recent visit to San Francisco’s historic Mission District to explore what it takes to live in a neighborhood where everyone is a homeowner.
I spent a day at the historic Mission in January, a time when I’d rarely see this neighborhood.
The streetscape is pretty much untouched, but it was nice to walk around the neighborhood.
My favorite parts are the neighborhood’s art galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants.
You can also walk the neighborhood in a car or bike.
And there are plenty of great cafes, shops, restaurants, and parks for walkers and cyclists.
I started by visiting the Mission’s first building, the historic Fisherman’s Wharf, which was designed by the renowned architect James Burnham in the 1920s.
This was the first building to have a central bay windows, so visitors could get a sense of the harbor.
I spent the afternoon taking pictures of the wharf’s colorful murals and watching the sunset over the bay.
I also visited the Mission District’s newest landmark, the Mission Bayfront.
I went there last month to take a peek at a few of the neighborhoods newest developments, and I was pleasantly surprised.
The Mission is the heart of San Francisco, and San Francisco has an amazing history that spans generations.
Mission Bay is where the first Mission District homes were built in 1910, and it’s also where many of the early Mission Districts first homes were located.
The area is a mix of old-growth and new-build homes, which make it feel like a mix.
I was also impressed by how well-preserved the area is.
The neighborhood’s most recent development, the City Square, is a mixed-use project with a mixed mix of residential and commercial.
It’s a great place to visit for a weekend getaway, but there are also a lot of great spots to eat, shop, and relax.
I also had the opportunity to check out a variety of other neighborhoods in the area.
The neighborhood has lots of new development going on, too.
Mission District has been a great spot to visit during the recession and the housing bubble.
The neighborhood’s population has increased by 20% since I’ve been here, and there are lots of people who are still making a home there.
I’ve had the pleasure of spending a lot more time in Mission Bay since I moved here in 2007.
I’m so glad I spent time here.
I would definitely recommend exploring Mission Bay as an option for your next visit to the Bay Area.
The neighborhoods are gorgeous, the residents are friendly, and the area has plenty of places to stay.
