Mission Street is San Franciscomarker's longest street (7.2 miles) and is one of its oldest. The street and the Mission Districtmarker which it runs were named for the Spanishmarker Mission Doloresmarker, several blocks away from the modern route, which runs from the city's southern border to its northeast corner. Only the southern half is historically part of El Camino Real, which connected the missions.

From the south, it enters the city from Daly Citymarker and runs north through the Crocker-Amazon, Excelsior, Bernal Heights, and Inner Missionmarker neighborhoods. From there the road turns northeast and travels through the South of Market neighborhood (running a full block south of Market Streetmarker) before ending at the Embarcaderomarker in downtown San Francisco.

In the South of Market portion of the street, new high rises have risen along the street like the 40-story The Paramountmarker, the 26-story 101 Second Streetmarker, the 31-story JP MorganChase Buildingmarker and the 42-story St. Regis Museum Towermarker. More high rises are planned or are under construction like the Millennium Towermarker, 555 Mission Streetmarker, and the San Francisco Transbay developmentmarker.

It is served 24 hours a day by the Muni line 14; two BART stations are directly under it in the Inner Missionmarker; all the rest of San Francisco's BART stations are less than a mile away from it. The street is four lanes wide.
