My place is close to the Mission District, the Dogpatch district and not too far from AT&T Park.
A couple of blocks away is Philz Coffee, Bernal Heights Park, Dynamo Donuts, Highway 280 & 101. You’ll love my place because of the homey-ness My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
Located directly south of the Mission District, Bernal Heights is a quiet residential neighborhood with plenty of green space and a wide range of shops and eateries along picturesque Cortland Avenue. From the apartment, you can take a brisk one-mile trek to the summit of Bernal Hill, a favorite spot for local picnickers that offers expansive views of the Financial District to the north, Twin Peaks to the west, and Glen Park to the south. Or you can opt for a shorter (and less hilly) walk to 24th Street in San Francisco’s fast-evolving Mission District, where new restaurants rub elbows with tried-and-true taquerias.
The Mission District is a colorful district full of yummy restaurants, fun things to do, shopping, and nightlight.
