This is a nice, quirky "bohemian" place to visit in SF, with lots of nice independent shops and cafes. It has a really nice feel to it.

I was born long after the Summer of Love, but I'm still well aware of the significance of this neighborhood in American culture. My husband, his ten year old son and I set out way too late in the afternoon for Haight-Ashbury. The main goal of our visit was to go to Amoeba Music (my better half loves records) and... More

We walked to Haight Ashbury from Union Square, to work up an appetite, and we're delighted to find 1428 Haight cafe, breakfast $10 per head. Great shops and surroundings, rather a lot of strange odours in the air. Had lunch at Magnolias Inn, good ales, brewed on site.

Great place for shopping and eating in the city. Still has that Bohemian vibe. Must visit Amoeba Records for audiophile Nirvana. Great Middle Eastern lunch at Blue Front Cafe. Tie-dyed heaven at the corner of Haight and Ashbury.

This neighborhood is a MUST SEE! Lots of fun, interesting shops, restaurants and bars in the area. Sit down somewhere, have a cocktail and just watch the diverse group of people in the area. Loved it!

Saw homes of Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin. Visited Amoeba Records. Enjoyed the street art throughout this neighborhood. The shops are a little pricey but interesting. Great photo opportunities. Make this part of your tour!

I visited as part of a sf city guides walking tour and it made the world of difference to visiting here. Yes there is some great buildings and the odd hippie walking around but a visit here is more about learning about its past rather than admiring what it now is.

We have been to San François Several times, but this is the first time we made it out to Haight-Ashbury. It is definitely a slightly gentrified area with a hippy/bohemian edge. My husband an I enjoyed exploring the area and it's many unique shops and second hand stores. We especially liked walking through the voluminous amount of second hand clothing... More

This was a very strange place. It well worth a idiot as it like stepping back in time, we went here on a tour so did. It stay long but did visit the market and got some fantastic sandwiches for our lunch and for San Fran very reasonable, great for fresh fruit as well

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.
