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
Some years ago I visited H-A and was disappointed, the place seemed very flat. We went back and the area was busy, bars with live music and an eclectic mix of shops. I was pleased to see a sense of regeneration and the atmosphere was...More
Ok, so the summer of love was short lived and soured fairly quickly, and even given it's own funeral by those who initiated it.. but the spirit lives on.
I was just a nipper in '67 but I remember it and all that which grew...More
It is just part of San Francisco. Lots of cute shops, secondhand shops, vintage shops and restaurants. Still has some reflections of days gone by. It is a good place to spend a couple of hours walking the streets check in the shops eating some...More
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.
One of our favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco. We loved the vibe and the funky shops and restaurants. Yes it’s a little grungy and don’t expect the restaurants to let you use the bathroom unless you’re having a meal. The ice cream bar is a...More
I was in the bay area on business and had some time to kill before my red eye flight. Decided to stop here to go on a little rock ‘n’ roll pilgrimage to see some of the cool sites have heard about.
Whatever coolness it...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.
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.
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
