Description

The Mission District

DESCRIPTION

The Mission District is an awesome neighborhood in SF full of breathtaking murals, historic theaters, Latin American markets, and upscale donut shops, to name a few of its attractions. It also includes SF's oldest building, the Mission San Francisco de Asis (Mission Dolores).


The Mission is famous for its murals, addressing everything from human rights to local gentrification. We'll explore one of two options: Balmy Alley off the 24th Street BART, parallel to Treat Ave and Harrison Street between 24th & 25th streets; and Clarion Alley off the 16th Street BART parallel to 17th and 18th streets between Valencia & Mission streets.

Mission District Photowalk Directions



Please bring this page along! This walk isn't far, but it does cover a lot of busy urban areas. Below are detailed directions for the walk so if you get lost or want to wander off and go at a slower pace, you can do so and still find your way.


We are meeting at 12:20 at the Bart station in Berkeley by the underground Peets. We will be taking the train to San Francisco at 12:39 sharp, so don’t be late! If you have to arrive later than 12:20, please be aware we may already be downstairs by 12:35ish.


Walking Directions


1.) We will be taking the Daly City line directly to 24th Street Mission Bart.


2.) Once we disembark, we will proceed upstairs and onto the corner of 24th & Mission.


3.) From here, we will walk east along 24th Street until we reach Balmy Street.


4.) We will walk down Balmy Street until 25th Street where we will turn left and head east.


5.) Once we reach Alabama Street, we will turn left and follow it back up to 24th Street.


6.) Once we hit 24th Street, we will turn right and walk until York Street, then we will turn around and walk back to the 24th Street Bart.


7.) Once we reach the Bart station we will turn right and follow Mission Street until we hit 19th Street where we will turn left and follow the road until we reach Mission Dolores Park.


8.) We will stop at Mission Dolores Park for a while. Please remember what time we are rejoining to avoid having to hold every one up to wait for you! If you are unsure, please call or text one of us.


9.) Once we’re done at the park, we will head north up Dolores Street until we reach 18th Street where we will turn right and continue until we reach Valencia Street where we will turn left. We will continue on Valenica for half a block north until we hit Clarion Alley, and then we’ll turn left on Clarion and walk through the alley until we hit Mission St. We’ll turn left on Mission and continue until we hit the 16th Street Bart and head home on the Richmond line train.
