In my opinion, there is no â€œfancyâ€ side of Mission. I think a walk through the neighborhood gives you a good feel for daily life for many city residents. But for the â€œnicestâ€ area of Mission I would recommend Inner Mission between Potrereo Ave. and South Van Ness and between 15th St. and 24th St.
This is a charming little neighborhood within Inner Mission that offers great weather, businesses, and a tightâ€“knit community. Itâ€™s a safe neighborhood where youâ€™ll find all types of artists, techies, and families alike living. Renting or buying, it has all sorts of property to choose from, such as Condos, lofts and single family homes.
There is an array of great shopping, cafes, restaurants, and bars spread throughout the area. For a few popular digs to check out, start with breakfast at Universal CafÃ©, then take a walk down 24th st. over to Valencia corridor for a little shopping and back over to 20th st. and Shotwellâ€™s for a drink to end the day, or start the night. Check it out..
