Not too many hippies left, but tons of classic rock history

See The Deads house, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplins. All from the outside of course. Sadly there are many overpriced clothing stores, but they are worth a look if you are window... read more

Have dreamt of this place forever. Home of my heroes and Revolution. It's changed from the summer of love but still worth walking in the famous/infamous footsteps.

Haight - Ashbury is a must see for visitors to San Fransisco. A convergence of old world charm and new age hip. This place brings all people together.

See The Deads house, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplins. All from the outside of course. Sadly there are many overpriced clothing stores, but they are worth a look if you are window shopping. Lots of bums, some hippies left. I talked with some the other day and they played a Grateful Dead song for me before I left, but these... More

There's no doubt that the heyday of Haight Asburu is long gone. All of the shops are really tacky and are trying to live of a reputation that was established in the 1960s. Avoid!

I started walking at Civic Center this morning at 10am. Walked past City Hall, Public Library, music hall. Walked along Hayes Street or Golden Gate Avenue. Interesting buildings along the way. Turned into Fillmore and walked towards Japantown. They had Farmers Market / street performance at Fillmore. If you appreciate Japanese culture and crave for Japanese food; Japan Center /... More

This area is associated with the hippie movement of the 70s It is full of little shops, vintage clothing, tie-die shirts and dresses, non-conventional souvenirs. Lots of places to eat and drink, cheaper than other areas of SF. Streets smell of pee and weed. Interesting enough even for a non-hippie to spend a couple of hours wondering the streets.

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.
