One reason the Inner Mission is cool is because it’s hot — compared to the rest of foggy San Francisco, that is. People also love the area because it’s at the apex of all that is happening in the tech economy and culturally, including a vibrant café culture, great nightlife, an eclectic mix of new developments and classic, older San Francisco architecture.

The area was recognized for a vibrant punk culture in the 1970s and 1980s and finally became known as a "bohemian" center. In the 1990s, waves of Central American immigrants and political refugees migrated into the Inner Mission, contributing to the development of a dynamic latino cultural nexus in the city's center.
