The Different Colors of San Francisco's Mission District

San Francisco is such a beautiful city that I would not want to live anywhere else. As a native San Franciscan, I have come to appreciate all that this city has to offer. Although we do not feel the seasons unlike other parts of California, we can rely on a mostly mild climate throughout the year; nevertheless, the city's offerings more than compensates for the weather. In fact, anyone who has ever visited can see how diverse a city it is, particularly the area known as the Mission District, where I have lived all of my life.

As a lover of the great outdoors, I enjoy walking in Dolores Park and looking at the tall palm trees and green lawns while breathing the fresh air and admiring the San Francisco skyline. Once in a while I get together with friends and have a picnic in the open area or simply enjoy the concerts and performances that take place throughout the year. In addition to the park, the Mission District is known for its murals. As someone who enjoys learning, I have taken a tour of the District as a means of gaining an understanding of the history of murals as well as the painting process; to make the tour even more interesting is the fact that the tour guide is a muralist himself so I was able to get a first-hand account of what it takes to be an artist.

The selection of restaurants in the Mission District is incredible, and there is something for everyone's taste from a hamburger and french fries to Italian, French, or Mexican cuisine. Since my favorite food is Mexican burritos, I go to La Taqueria, an inexpensive Mexican establishment that is known for its mouth-filling chicken burritos with fresh salsa, beans, and onions. Of course, when I have a craving for pizza, I stop at Pizzeria Delfina, a European-style cafe with indoor and oudoor tables and chairs, where the staff makes Napoletana pizza to perfection with all of the finest ingredients including olives, capers, tomatoes, anchovies, hot peppers, and oregano.

The Mission District has its share of stores that cater primarily to people who enjoy shopping from mom-and-pop businesses. Since I enjoy shopping from nationwide chains, I choose the stores on Market Street, just a five-minute walk from the Mission area. Nevertheless, the Mission District is an area of San Francisco that I embrace with its cultural diversity and wonderful scenery.
