The Vista was home to artisans and makers long before the maker movement was cool. Spanning 48 blocks, many of its historic buildings date back to the early 1900s. Artists helped lead the way in the area’s resurgence starting in the 1980s, and today the spirit of the arts remains evident in this district filled with restaurants, local businesses and homes. Don’t be surprised if you see an artist painting a mural, a pocket park or roving musicians playing in the streets - that’s the Vista spirit.
