  • Mission and Valencia Street Corridor

    San Francisco
    Nightlife Area / Shopping Area
    Mission and Valencia Street Corridor - Nightlife Area | Shopping Area in San Francisco.
    Feb 20, 2013 Where Trendy Boutiques Meet Street Taco Carts "The Mission and Valencia Street corridor is where San Francisco’s Latin heritage merges with bespoke tastes of the young and wealthy techies. Italian furniture stores, mom and pop taquerias, trendy restaurants and bars line both streets. A whole day can go by exploring Valencia and Mission, and arguably, a whole day should be devoted to just that. Try Tartine Bakery, even if the line is out the door. Hint: line will always be out the door, no matter how early you get there but it will be worth the wait. On Valencia, the shopping options are endless, with trendy boutiques, and vintage shops that sell everything from deer horns to Ray Bans. Stop by Gracias Madre on Mission Street for a completely Vegan Mexican meal or grab a street taco if you’re craving something more authentic. A must see are the many vibrant murals decorate the connecting side streets, reminding visitors of the rich cultural roots of this unique neighborhood. " hide

  • Mission Dolores Park

    San Francisco
    Outdoor Activity / Park
    Mission Dolores Park - Outdoor Activity | Park in San Francisco.
    Feb 20, 2013 No Other Place in San Francisco on a Sunny Day "One visit to Mission Dolores Park proves exactly why San Francisco was the birthplace of the, Summer of Love. Located on top of a hill, the park boasts panoramic views of the city, lots of grass space to enjoy the sunshine and hip eateries right across the street. Grab a blanket and get here early to secure a spot with the best view of Downtown’s skyscrapers and San Francisco Bay below. Taking a cab is highly recommended, as parking is nearly impossible in this neighborhood. Favorite pastimes of the locals include tanning on the grass after a bottomless Mimosa Sunday brunch at Mission Dolores Café or grabbing a scoop of artisenal ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery. The Summer of Love vibes are certainly present here, as a man known locally only as Brownie Man is regularly spotted at the park selling a special brand of home made brownies. The Castro is just a few blocks away, so be prepared to see many ridiculously in-shape sun bathers, some in Speedos some in nothing at all. While Dolores Park is located the Mission District, otherwise known as the unofficial hipster central of San Francisco, people from all over the city come to enjoy this park. It’s the perfect place to spend a sunny day in the city, the fact that the weather here is always about 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the city is just an added bonus. " hide

    Feb 20, 2013 Cocktails in an Amazonian Rainforest "San Francisco has no shortage of is trendy bars but Nightlife at the Academy of Sciences tops them all with the sheer cool factor of sipping cocktails while checking out luminescent jellyfish or exploring the galaxy at the Planetarium. Walk three levels of a live Amazonian rainforest that features tropical butterflies, exotic flowers and even poisonous spiders. Don’t worry, the spiders are safely tucked behind glass terrariums. Local artisans set up booths and niche activities are held throughout the museum. Visitors can try being a deejay, join a knitting class or taste a local scotch. A popular destination for first dates and singles, Nightlife is will keep you coming back with its eclectic mix of great cocktails and science. " hide
