We spent a good amount of time trying to find parking to walk around the city. Finally found a spot and after we got out and started walking we noticed people kept standing near our car to take pictures. I looked up the address and...More
When in San Francisco to visit the Legion of Honor, we drove through the Haight. Pulled up in front of the Grateful Dead House, put it in park, started the warning lights and jumped out for a picture or two.

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.
