If you are looking for inspiration the mission district is where you want to be. This neighborhood is colorful, fun, young, and exciting. It honestly has it all, the art, the vintage stores, and great affordable food. Clarion Alley Mural Project is just one of the many areas where you can go check out some really good street art and perhaps is one of the most known too. The main focus of these murals is social inclusiveness and aesthetic variety and with nowadays social tensions I say we need a little more of this and a little less hatred and negativity. Do yourself a favor and spend sometime in this area if you are in SF. I also hear that some of the best bars are in this neighborhood, but I’ll have to see that for myself.
