Around Mission Bay

Southwest side of the neighborhood near Channel Street, the reservoir side is a very popular section among young professionals in the tech industry as well as a few lifelong San Francisco natives. As a big center for commerce and tourism, droves of people from all over the world come flocking to the neighborhood on sunny days. While on the opposite side near a section called China Basin, there are more casual vibes boasting mostly locals, a few cafes, and grocery stores.

Frequent tourism and an abundance of high-class residents have created an ecosystem of delicious concoctions from around the world. Down at the Pier you can find five-star French cuisine, the freshest seafood, gourmet burgers, and much more. Culinary selections grow even more down King Street and the closer you get to AT&T Park.

The southwestern side of the neighborhood is what you would expect of a tourist-centric area. There are a plethora of gift shops, people taking pictures of various statues, and the fog that occasionally rolls in from the bay. In the more residential parts of the neighborhood, you'll find more franchise coffee shops and tech employees than artists and locally-owned cafes that you would find in other places.

Mission Bay has its fare share of cool and relaxing lounges to drink an assortment of interesting cocktails near China Basin Street. However, the neighborhood isn't really a place for a rip roaring night of drinking and partying, but it is one of the best places to catch a show in any form. Between Market and Harrison Streets you can find live music, theatrical plays, musicals, as well as movie theaters with special showings of classic movies.

Besides the few stragglers of tourists, Sunday's at the Pier are much better for casual walks than any other days of the week. The crowds have all thinned out and you can really get some fantastic views of the Bay when it's sunny. Sunday's are also a great time to check out some of the paintings and sculptures designed by local artists that can be found in fun pop-up studios along the main drag of 3rd Street.
