Mission Dolores is a district located in the northeast section of San Francisco, California on the Bayside. This neighborhood is both residential and commercial and has many historic landmarks. Churches, schools, a theatre, some historic institutions such as the San Francisco Armory, and industrial buildings all make interesting walking destinations in the community. There are lots of businesses distributed throughout the area and concentrated on main thoroughfares such as Valencia Street. A local neighborhood association works to designate historic buildings and maintain the area by counteracting graffiti and encouraging preservation of historic structures. 

When strolling through Mission Dolores with your dog, San Francisco locals will experience plenty of foggy days with reduced visibility. This inland Bayside neighborhood usually experiences lifting of fog and clearing earlier in the day than some other areas of San Francisco. Cold snaps and breezy or wet days require a jacket to enjoy on foot travel in the neighborhood.

Homes are closely set on narrow lots with large beautiful shade trees.
