One of our first stops was the Mission district. Famous for it's Mexican/Latin heritage, this neighborhood is full of vibrant, beautiful and political murals. Many are concentrated in Balmey and Clarion alleys, but they're scattered throughout the neighborhood as well.
Balmey alley's murals have a more traditional style and tend to pay homage to earlier struggles of indigenous people.
Whereas Clarion alley has a more modern, graffiti feel. It's political messages are more overt and the designs are bold and urban.
Both places are really breathtaking and inspiring. After working up an appetite walking through the neighborhood definitely enjoy one of the many taquerias that line the streets.
