Borderlands Books is located on lively Valencia Street between 19th and 20th, in the heart of San Francisco's famous Mission District. There are several other bookstores in the neigborhood (Dog Eared Books, Alley Cat Books and Modern Times), and plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining at small, locally-owned places with character.

The bookstore is right next to the Mission Playground and park, so you can enjoy the enjoy the fresh air, and/or (let your children) burn off some energy after you shop for books.

Just a few blocks away is the massive Mission Dolores Park, which is perfect for a picnic, and (as suggested by its name) is next to the historic Mission Dolores (the oldest intact structure in San Francisco), which dates back to 1776 and includes the beautiful cemetery and gardens you may have seen in the movie "Vertigo". Borderlands also offers a great starting point for your walking tour of the renowned Mission murals; grab a cup of coffee at our Cafe before you explore the breathtaking work of local artists.
