Sunny, centrally located, with practical amenities and extracurricular activities galore, Mission Dolores has everything you could possibly ask for in a locale. And no wonder – as San Francisco’s oldest neighborhood, it’s had plenty of time to perfect the formula. Families will appreciate top-rated public schools and grocery stores of all shapes and sizes. If shopping’s your thing, check out some of the many stores before heading to the hipness that is Valencia Street. In the mood for a bit of nature? Dolores Park is one of the city’s top parks. Foodies will appreciate world-famous eats, or meander down tree-lined Church Street. To the north, the Castro offers plenty of after dark options and there’s always something happening in nearby Mission. Best of all, if you ever do decide to leave this happy little enclave, it’s an easy trip via BART, MUNI, or 101, or a lovely bike ride along the “Wiggle”.
