Loved Haight Ashbury area. Steeped in music history. Great shots and lovely eating places. Note so sure it would always be a safe but was definitely good fun in a warm summers day. Even the mushroom dealers were very plesent

Trendy, nostalgic, funky and the birth place of the counter culture and psychedelic movement in the 60"s. Now more mainstream with bars and restaurants.

The electric paint jobs from the 60s are long gone. The area is totally gentrified. Subdued painting on most buildings The architecture on some is amazing. Definitely look up as you walk. We did find a few holdouts

Loved this area for its colourful street scape, eclectic mix of shops and stores and wonderful street art. It’s easy to imagine what it would have been like in its heyday in the 60/70’s when it was at its hippie best. Definitely worth a stop...More

Eclectic neighborhood with lots of vintage clothing stores, record stores and unique gift shops. Colorful murals on storefronts. A short walk from Golden Gate Park and not too far from Alamo Square (Painted Ladies). You could stop at all three in one day.

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.

From SFO search shuttle services to the city. It's a shared taxi/van. Easy & convenient from the airport. If you're driving , use waze or maps. Otherwise take Uber or Lyft so easy, quick & efficient to anywhere in san Fran
