The Mission District is filled with street art and there are two primary alleys (dirty alleys) that are popular to drive down. The Clarion Alley and Balmey Alley tell tales of the gentrification of the area, politics, humor and simple entertainment pieces. There is something...More

So many better things to see in SF than this stinking alleyway with some racked trainers. If you’re heading to the Mission District, go elsewhere.

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.

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 neighbourhood 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
