Mission Terrace

Mission Terrace enjoys more sunshine than most of its more centrally located neighbors.

Mission Terrace approaches San Francisco’s outskirts, but this friendly community shares the same intimate vibe of its more central neighbors. Colorful homes replete with blooming gardens line Mission Terrace’s surprisingly sunny streets, and local markets and pizza parlors are more common than strip malls and national chains. Although it’s bounded by several transportation corridors (freeways and BART stations included) Mission Terrace manages to remain quiet while providing quick access to energetic nighttime neighborhoods.
