3321 16th St., Mission
Cultural history of San Francisco often focuses on the '60s, but Mission Dolores, the city's oldest standing building, is a gentle but firm reminder of San Francisco's long and fascinating history. Built in 1776, the mission has a simple exterior but a more opulent space for quiet prayer inside; a visit will feel like stepping into tiny old European churches, but with a distinctly California sensibility. While this is definitely a tourist destination, it's interesting to note that Mission Dolores is still an active parish of the Catholic church, with an elementary school and plenty of opportunities for worship if you're so inclined.
Precita Eyes Mural Tours
2981 24th St., Mission
The Precita Eyes Muralists tours in San Francisco are a really fantastic way to see the city via local outdoor art. There are numerous worthy murals to be seen all around S.F. and the tour guides here know them all in and out.
Dolores Park Movie Night
19th & Dolores St., Mission
The movie nights here are really fun (it's great to grab a blanket and your buddies and sit for the night), which is why locals and visitors in the know flock to the park on summer evenings to make one of the few annual shows.
