Stroll along the Mission's wide avenues and be struck by the profusion of taquerias, pupuserias, produce markets and Salvadoran bakeries, all evidence of the Central American and Mexican families that have been settling the Mission en masse since the 1950s. The neighborhood is also home to plenty of cafes, thrift shops and used-book stores that cater to the college grads, artists, and activists that have historically been drawn to the Mission. With the Internet boom came trendy restaurants and boutiques, creating an interesting mix of places that survived the changes and new arrivals that are now making the Mission home. Whether looking to take in the newer stores and cafes or get a taste of the neighborhood's history and Latin culture, the area is crawling with things to see and do.
