Remember the 60's?

Haight Ashbury was the center of the love movement in the 1960's where all the hippies congregated and created a total community. Must visit.

Noticed it is much cleaner than 20 years ago lol. Had so much fun just hanging out and having a few drinks. Did a little shopping. The best part was sitting in a bar and imagining the people and musicians that walked the same streets as I was walking on and the history of those two infamous words Haight &... More

Buzzing with the old hippie vibe. Full of interesting shops and sights (spot the legs sticking out of the wall above one of the shops), vintage clothing shops, and a great veggi / healthy eatery that did egg white omelettes. Spend the afternoon mooching around, drinking in the atmosphere - or a whole day or two if you can manage.... More

A strip of throwback in time. Interesting to see the vibe of the time period. Not a lot to do but it is a must see to feel the vibe.

Don't go before 11am because not a whole lot is open! I went to this district on a Friday morning at about 9am for breakfast because it was my last half-day in the US and the place was almost like a ghost town. Once it hit about 11am though the shops and other cafes started opening and the interesting collection... More

I got my driver's license during the Summer of Love, so had to walk thru the Haight. Sure, it's tourist-y as all getup, but it's still lots of nostalgic fun. Just wish it hadn't been drizzling all day, but that's SF for ya!

I traveled solo through Haight. Plenty of unique stores and people to meet. Yes, there are homeless people and the scent of marijuana in the air on occasion, but no one was threatening or harrassing. I felt very safe walking here on my own. If you enjoy colorful murals, history, and a laid back vibe, chexk out Haight!

This is a great street to walk and shop for authentic things, they have preserve it as it was back in the 60's with all the good and bad things. You will find plenty of stores with vintage clothes, some have it classify by eras, 20s, 30s, 40s etc some just have it by racks; t-shirts, leather jackets etc. Yes,... More

Park on Haight near Buena Vista park, and do not leave ANYTHING of value in your car! The Haight is just a few blocks west. Be sure and check a guide book to see where Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, and Janis Joplin crashed. Be sure to check out the store Loved to Death, and the Bound Together Anarchist Book... More

For the more mature admirers of rock n roll or even the hippy movement it's an adventure to walk, shop and people watch. Buy a cigar or smoke hookah on the ground floor of where Jimmy Hendrix lived. Make it a daytime excursion. I would not have been comfortable there in the evening hours.

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
