Went for a stroll through the area on the way to the park. Like stepping back in time to the sixties. Great atmosphere and very much part of the culture of the city

This was a gem of a place we found by accident whilst passing through one day. A knock back to the summer of love with hippy shops and laid back atmosphere. Loved the vinyl record shop with over a million records to browse through, the Jim Hendrix house, and the various facades of beautifully created buildings. Take the time to... More

I see things have not changed much since the hippy movement! When the tour bus dropped us off we were in front of a "clinic" where you could apply for your medical marijuana card. The line was quite long. There were people standing around all over sharing weed on the street. We had to stop and eat at a sidewalk... More

After seeing heaps of photos of this district I was slightly disappointed, very dirty with drug dealers offering you weed. Some great murals are around the Main Street and quirky shops are there if your into the alternative. The park down the end of the street was full of homeless people which is also off putting if you want to... More

It was the original hippie joint, now still hip, but replaced by some modern decor. Have a walk about, dine in the many restaurants, diners and enjoy the world go by. Shops abound for the retro stuff and a nice market selling fantastic array of food stuffs. Spend some time wandering in this area and you will be pleasantly surprised... More

Safe yourself a lot of hassle and book a tour, Haight has a lot of dangerous areas and you've really go to know where you're going or you'll end up in some drug den.

A walk back in time to the 60s to remember Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, Jefferson Airplane and the hippie generation. Great shops. Good eats. Great stop - Ben and Jerry's at the corner of Haight and Ashbury - also a great photo spot.

It was a really interesting experience to see all these people cheering and smiling to you. I've never been to a place where so many people ask me if I want to buy some weed...that was strange ;)

We tried to reach here by car but we could not find parking space and we drove around the streets. May be you dont believe me but it was very good to get lost in the streets around here because streets and houses are very impressively beautiful. We fall in love with them.

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
