I've never been to San Francisco before. I really enjoyed it. The Grateful Dead house history is really cool. Plus if you love tie dye you just have visit the Jammin tie dye store. They have everything you can imagine.

The area has some really interesting and unique shops as well as food venues. It has everything from clothes, shoes, art, trinkets and records. We spent just over half a day wandering up and down Haight and popping into all the shops. We could have easily stayed for another couple of hours though. We got there on the 71 bus... More

This was a truly surreal experience. So very reminiscent of the hippie culture of my youth. Ground zero for the iconoclastic counter culture of the 60s, many hippies remain in The Haight today, co-existing with the many modern-day entrepreneurs. Lots of great shops, eating establishments and bars exist in The Haight today. Great photo-ops abound. Real estate prices have gone... More

Haight and Ashbury had been recommended to me by several people, and I am not entirely sure why! As some one who used to live in London, I am very familiar with this kind of scene, particularly in areas like Camden - but I thought i Would give it a shot. I was disappointed to find only a couple of... More

Ok, the Haight is not everyone's scene, and perhaps not a good family place by night. But, if you like a little flashback to the 60s, unique and quirky little shops with things you will find nowhere else, interesting people and wonderful photo opps everywhere, you just might really find this to be a lot of fun. We visited the... More

Still has all the potential to attract the tourists who still visit the area. The mind boggles at the self destruct that San Francisco metropole have not placed on the area. The amount of homeless, dopeheads and crackheads sleeping on the pavement and on the verge of Golden Gatepark is quite astonishing. Needless to say the offer for drugs or... More

It's pretty much the same kind of options you have on haight street. If you're visiting the area you don't have to make an effort to pass by the area as it's a natural way going up or down haight street.

I loved this place, the quirky shops, the original boutiques, fabulous vinyl stores, great food, and a vibrant atmosphere. Its a place where everyone is accepted in society especially the quirky individuals. We visited Amoeba records and picked up some good vinyl's, my daughter thought it was the coolest place on earth, she got her first skateboard which was made... More

I grew up during the Hippie Movement and so when I went to San Francisco it was important to me to visit Haight-Ashbury. It was nothing like I expected it to be, but then the Hippie Movement was more than 50 years ago. While I did see a few old hippies the streets were filled with homeless people and pan... More
