18th Street in Mission Dolores is one of the chicest places to stroll, see and be seen. Over-the-top restaurants, gourmet delis, trendy cafes, Frisco-style ice cream and boutiques flank the promenade up to Dolores Park
, which has been newly remodeled. It is one of the few places where the sun seems to always shine. Spend an afternoon eating all the goodies you picked up along the way on the grass in the park. Catch performances of all kinds, day or night.
