Came here because it's a big part of American history. Spent a couple of hours here then cycled around golden gate park. Don't expect the summer of love. Times have changed but it didn't ruin my visit. Plenty of 60s paraphernalia to pick up

Back to the hippy age and counter-culture central. The throngs of tie-dyed clothes and long hair have gone but you can see the influence. Some new-age hippies dot the pavement, a man with a smile wore a sign saying "free hugs" and many of the...More

It is pretty, but maybe a but touristy. I would only go there for Amoeba. That store is amazing. The area does not have much.

This was my favorite neighborhood that we visited on our recent trip to San Francisco. It was the middle of the day and we were with locals, so we didn't feel unsafe at all. We went to a number of eclectic shops, including second hand...More

An area famous for its bohemian vibe, flower power and summer of love. It didn’t disappoint! Lots of cool boutiques nearby, quirky houses and street art. Though there seems to be a feel people in the area looking pretty worse for wear and still seem...More

Took a stroll - colorful houses and charming cafés (and persons!) etc. More cozy than the center. Worth a visit.

I’ve been here several times. If you aren’t into architecture or checking out the former homes of bands, then there’s not a lot for you here. Just shops, restaurants, homes, head shops. If you take a tour then it gives s lot more context and...More

This is the place where the 60s/70s alternative cultures were born and where you can still feel them. You need to visit this place, also to have a look to the hippie Windows of the shops, or take a pic under the locked clock in...More

Around here are mainly hippie shops and cafes plus Golden Gate Park and Whole-food supermarket . The hippie dream may have started here in 1967 during the summer of love but finished 1968 with drug abuse and violence . It’s my second visit and much...More

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

If you're in Haight Ashbury, try Pork Store Cafe for breakfast or lunch (they also have a great veggie omelet). Very inexpensive, local, interesting crowd but small space and pretty crowded most of the time. Magnolia... More
