BERNAL HEIGHTS... Looking south from the Mission District, you will see a bald hill encircled by little pastel houses. It's brown in the summer, and it's turning a magical green during the winter and spring. Located about 3 miles from downtown, the neighborhood is bordered by Mission Street to the west, Cesar Chavez (Army) Street to the north, Bayshore Boulevard to the east, and Alemany Boulevard to the south. Bernal Heights enjoys the same sunny weather as its neighbor, the Mission District.

But unlike the Mission District, not much about Bernal Heights is trendy. You see fewer tattoos and piercing, and more small children. The neighborhood is generally understand and low-key. But don't assume that the residents are apolitical just because the streets are quiet; they have a long history of taking ownership of the neighborhood to preserve its village-like feeling. An eclectic mix of people live here gay, straight, black, white, Asian, Latino, artsy, blue-collar, old and young and when asked, they cite diversity as the area's greatest virtue.
