If you lived through the 60's then this is a must!!!!!!! Fabulous shops, I bought some genuine Uggs in a sale some years ago at half the price they are in the UK. Lots to see and do in this district with some great little eating places.

A few kitschy stores and some vagrants. Not a whole lot of anything. Kind of disappointed after hearing about it for years.

Besides having family that live in the area, we really enjoy the San Francisco area and go here often. Besides all the shops, Just people watching is worth it.

If you enjoy the aroma of marijuana, cheap, dirty stores that sale the same crap, paralyzed people and dogs alike, then this is the place for you! That's fine if you like to get stoned to paralysis, but why not do it in the privacy of your own home? And leave your poor, neglected, abused dog at the pound... he... More

The area is filled with some cool spots for taking quick pics, but unless you are into hemp shops, vintage clothes and being asked for some spare change every block, I would choose another area of SF for tourism. Keeping in mind I lived around the corner, each neighborhood in SF is unique. This used to be the place and... More

I went to high school in San Francisco which was a couple of blocks from the Haight-Ashbury. But that was in the 1950's and the area was completely different. Nowadays there are some good restaurants and a great place to shop for retro clothing.

Traditionally this was a hippy hangout but it's so much more than that now. It's a nice neighborhood with interesting stores, shops and eateries. It's got so much history it's fun to do a walking tour and learn about the legends that come from the Haight. My daughter lived there for 3 years and every visit took us to Haight... More

A revisit to my mis-spent youth visiting the Haigh-Ashbury area. Lots of memories and it's a bit of a tourist trap but fun none-the-less.

Growing up in the 70's and going to school at UC Berkeley meant that I spent too much time in Haight-Ashbury. Today it is more of a tourist spot than in my day. Worth the walk around and enjoy the "path down memory lane".

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.
