No clue what to expect. We laughed. We shopped. We explored! Had a perfect afternoon just strolling and shopping!

Have wanted to visit here for many years for the cultural and personal significance and I’m glad I have but won’t go back. If you’re looking for the hippie hot spot from the past this is NOT it (despite all the tie dye 😂) streets...More

If your a hippie at heart and embrace the laid back, mindfulness approach to life, you will love this place. Vibrant ,vintage, and alternative that’s Haight-Ashbury. Lovely area to experience while in San Francisco. Not a place I would stay, but worth a day out....More

This is a must if you lived through the late 1960"s and 70's and care about the music of Joplin, Hendrix, The Doors and The Dead! Great shops and boutiques memorialize that era of American history!

Both for the architecture and also obviously the focal point of music and protest in the late 60's. I always forget how little this area has truly changed over the years. It's certainly different now than then and to live here is to be in...More

We were at Haight-Ashbury because we went to a restaurant there. After we finished eating, we went for a walk around. The Victorian houses in the area are very beautiful. The shops are all hippie. I wouldn't come to Haight-Ashbury just to see it, but...More

We looked forward to walking around this famous area, not quite fully knowing what to expect many decades past its heyday. Colourful shopfronts selling souvenirs from the era of the hippies and clothes under the moniker of Tibet and other exotic places were interesting to...More

If you want to hang out in an iconic part of SF, Haight-Ashbury is hard to beat. Lots of history and unique culture you won't find anywhere else. The neighborhood has definitely gone much more mainstream and upscale over the past 20+ years but 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.

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
