If you love Rock Music, then you've basically heard the tales of Haight-Ashbury. The infamous streets did not disappoint, even though some of the people screaming and shouting scared the crap out of me (but that's besides the point). If anything do yourself a favor buy a record/vinyl, but not at Amoeba! There's a small business called, Recycled Records... When... More

Not what I expected. Didn't feel very safe walking round here and certainly wouldn't on my own. Lots of dope being smoked everywhere so the smell is always close in the air. Lots of ex hippies now addicts and hanging around the streets. Some interesting shops but wouldn't go back. Lots of faceless blocks of houses

Really good area to visit to get the feel of San Fran. The classic paste coloured houses, murals and interesting shops and bars. It's worth a visit as a tourist. Gives a real flavour of SF without the edgy uncomfortable feel of other areas like The Mission district.

When planning my time in SF, I really wanted to come to this neighborhood as it has a lot of history in American culture, specifically hippie culture. The neighborhood is very artsy and there are colorful wall murals everywhere. There are also many fun shops throughout. I'm glad I stopped here as I really enjoyed it. Head's up, you may... More

We did see the this area from the Tour bus we took. Quite interesting to see the painted houses. I could imagine that the shops and resturants are interesting here.

Haight-Ashbury is an absolute must on your travel list in San Francisco particularly if you were born in the 60's! It is very quirky and colourful to say the least! There is the glittery tattoo shop, the shop that sells death (literally!), the colourful graffiti on the walls, 'smoke' shops! and generally a colourful group of people 'living' in the... More

Baby boomers must go for the history. There is also some genuinely interesting shops and some cool places for coffee and food.

I've wanted to go there for many years and was looking forward to my visit. When I got off the Red Bus, there were many "homeless type" people all standing around and it made me feel a little uncomfortable. You could see their "bedrooms" in the park area. The actual Haight-Ashbury street area was very interesting for a person of... More

If you grew up in the 60's you will want to visit Haight-Ashbury to see what all the fuss was about and to relive some of those now fading memories from your formative years. Whether it's part of your timeline or not, Haight-Ashbury today is still a great place to visit - enchanting architecture, great little coffee shops and some... More

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.
