A great neighbourhood to see in San Francisco is The Mission. Walk along Mission St, and you’ll actually feel like you’re in South America. Tiendas line both sides of the road, selling everything from jewellery and clothing to authentic food and ingredients to make your own South American dishes. Go off the beaten track a bit, and you’ll find beautiful murals everywhere. I recommend going down 18th street towards Dolores Park – along the way, you’ll see The Women’s Building (you can’t miss it!), and Bi-Rite Creamery – you must stop here for ice cream!
