The Castro District, in Eureka Valley, is synonymous with gay culture. Revelers often spill onto the sidewalks at numerous bars, like Twin Peaks Tavern, whose floor-to-ceiling windows were revolutionary when it opened in 1972. The lavish Castro Theatre and the GLBT Historic Museum are also found here, as are homey restaurants and adult shops. On Market Street, 19th-century F-line streetcars head to Fisherman’s Wharf.

Much of San Francisco is home to great street murals, and The Castro is no exception.

The street art in the Castro District is unique in that it much of it touches on queer culture, either through its topic or its creator. In fact, the neighborhood has seen a renaissance of queer art lately.
