ok, I'm quasi-local but I have a few things to say about the Haight-Ashbury. The only reason one would want to go is for shoping on Haight st. There are sooo many awesome shops! If you like vintage, retro, "mod" clothes... if you like glittery...More

Okay. So en route to visit Stinson Beach for a week, I dragged my husband to the Haight, the place of my conception back in '67. What a waste of time! The place is creepy and dangerous, not colorful, creative or unique. It reminded me...More

Alighting from the bus to the sounds of 50s Rock and Roll put a smile on my face and a spring in my step. Fun area to wander around

It's a old town area, nothing much to see apart from the girls two legs hanging out of a home. There are restaurant for all taste buds.

Cool to see where so much history was made. I've always been fascinated by this era so it was definitely a must see. The grateful dead house is right up the street. Didn't spend too much time here, not really needed, but I was able...More

If you've even the slightest interest in the 1960s flower power movement then a visit to the Haight Ashbury should be high on your list of things to do in San Francisco.

This area looks so special and somehow unique public. The buildings are amazing and colourful. The shops are interesting.

Fun to drive through this historic neighborhood we've learned so much about. Still some signs of probable addiction, as witnessed by some behaviors. Wouldn't care to stroll the streets alone, especially at night.

It's historic, but now gentrified and full of beautifully-restored homes. Come for the cafes and cute history, stay for the architecture.

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
