Baby Boomers will like this place -- a reminder of the Summer of Love from 1967. Stop in at the Nepal store and "feel the love." Great place to visit if you like nostalgia and iconic places from the past.

The Haight is still an edgy area but the psychedelic T shirts were seen only in trendy shops and not on the folks in the streets. It's hard for such an area to maintain what it once had and became famous for, but that's OK. It was what it was. ...

Our trip to Haight-Ashbury was limited. We are planning to return to investigate this unique place. The streets are lined with gift shops and restaurants, many filled with pipes in their windows. Vintage clothing, jewelry, weird and unusual items are for sale. We found the tobacco shop where Jimmy Hendrix's girl friend once lived. Several nice clothing stores have fine... More

On a vacation trip to San Francisco decided to take my daughter down famous Haight Street, as we strolled the iconic neighborhood the sights were wild, maybe not as psychedelic as they once were, but every bit as open as they had been back in "the day".....the shops never seem to change, only the faces....it was truly an experience.

I walked for about an hour and a half from my Hostel to Haight-Ashbury, which I was totally happy to do. It was easy to find using a map and it was good to see the streets of San Francisco on the way! When I got to Haight-Ashbury, I was underwhelmed. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, but...

We took a bus to Haight & Ashbury to check it out and say we had been there. The area is loaded with gift shops all touting window displays of psychedelic and tie dyed clothing and trinkets from the love & peace era. Bohemian restaurants, hippy bars and head shops are tucked in between well cared for, colorful row houses.... More

This is kind of cool. It was nice to get away from the usual fishermans wharf tourist stuff and check out this area. I love the history here and the art everywhere. But lets face reality, its now crawling with druggies, alcoholics, and all kinds of shady people. I went into some of the thrift stores and consignment shops and... More

This district was pure b.s. The home of "peace and free love" was ironically the only place in san fran in which most stores wouldn't let us use the bathroom unless you paid for something. Several stores also confiscated backpacks at the door for fear of people stealing something :/ Beyond the nauseating and inescapable smell of incense and the... More

This is where it all happened. Have to visit this iconic spot. The buildings have not changed but the stores and bars have. It is a trip back....man. The record store alone near GG Park is worth the trip to the haight. Great place to walk and shop and eat. What else is there? Drink too? Smoke a few?

What a fun place to hang out. People watching is amazing. Lots of shops and restaurants. Scenery is awesome. We took the bus here. Walked all the way to Golden Gate Park from here. You must have to see it just once.

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
