Local Attractions


Union Square and its surrounding district showcases the best in fashion, dining, and entertainment. The center of ‘60s psychedelia, Haight Street remains a hippie enclave with anarchist bookshops, piercing salons, and funky clothing shops. At the Ferry Building Marketplace, shoppers can choose from a dizzying variety of locally-sourced produce, meats, artisan cheeses, and more — especially during the Farmer’s Market every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Clarion Alley

A small street between Mission and Valencia Streets, Clarion Alley was once the center of a lagoon that covered the Mission District. Originally called Cedar Lane, the alley’s name was changed around the turn of the 20th century. The street is notable for community and arts activity, including the Clarion Alley Mural Project.
