The Mission Dolores neighborhood, named for the earliest Spanish Mission in San Francisco, isn't quite the Mission and it isn't quite the Castro. It has its own special vibe and attitude, and people love it for its central location, the sunny weather and fantastic people watching.
Mission Dolores is defined by Dolores Park, a large park that occupies roughly a city block and is a popular destination. On a sunny day, you'll find the slopes of the park hills covered with sunbathers while all of the tennis courts will be occupied with active games. Regardless of the weather, though, it is a popular spot with dog walkers and the playground is currently undergoing renovation. Dolores Park is also a great spot to snap a picture of the San Francisco downtown skyline.
