Outer Mission Neighborhood Vibe
The Outer Mission is bounded by I-280 along the west side of the neighborhood, and construction of the freeway created a geographic barrier bisecting the Ingleside, Oceanview, and Outer Mission neighborhoods. Geneva bounds the neighborhood to the north while Mission St. lends the neighborhood its name and eastern border.
The San Francisco county line bisects neighborhood streets that are laid out in an angular fashion, resulting in streets that have homes in both San Mateo and San Francisco Counties.
Popular Outer Mission Home Styles
Like nearby Crocker Amazon, Mission Terrace, Oceanview, and Ingleside, the neighborhood is almost entirely single-family homes that were built between the great quake of 1906 and the Vietnam war.
Getting Around in the Outer Mission
In addition to being convenient to I-280, the south end of the neighborhood is very close to the Daly City BART station while the north end of the neighborhood is very close to the Balboa Park BART. While the neighborhood offers surprisingly good BART access, Muni access is limited to buses and the neighborhood is pretty car-dependent.
