Best Walls in San Francisco

San Francisco is a city with an abundance of amazing street art - walking down its streets is like wandering through an art gallery. Over 1000 murals can be seen in all over the city - in some parts of the city, like the Mission, there are murals everywhere you look, and this is where you can find many of the best walls in San Francisco.

I am a sucker for a good wall and I love cruising the city to find them! Here, I've rounded up my favorites for the ultimate collection of the best walls in San Francisco, and where to find them.

A lot of it actually looks like an art gallery. Really beautiful collection. Are the murals recent??

@Harinie - yes! Most of the photos were taken within the past week :)

Oh my my this is so beautiful.
Hello from India. My friend stats in San Francisco. But I am seeing the quircks of the city through your eyes for the first time. Lovely

San Fran kind of reminds me of Melbourne (Australia) with all its street art. Can't wait to visit one day!

Natasha von Geldern said...

Wow, I am a huge fan of street art and seek it out wherever I travel - these pics look amazing!!

Kristin Kohler said...

What a great list! I live in Germany currently and not in the kind of place where there are murals for taking photos next to, so I love seeing all the cool ones back in the states. My husband might hate it, but if I ever get to a big city in the US I will be dragging him around to take my photo at the best ones!
