This area has so much character . If you lived through the Flower Power years, you need to take a visit to this Haight Street ! Lots of interesting shops, ranging from vintage, ethnic and modern clothing, music and costumes. Even though you may not buy anything, just walk into these shops and take a look.

Wasn't sure what to expect when visiting the corner of Haight and Ashbury, the epicenter of hippie culture in the late 60's. What I found were some charming gift and general merchandise shops, a few edgy tattoo parlors, a lot of trendy eateries, and in general, a neighborhood in which I would like to spend more time exploring. I remember... More

If you don't have an Inner Hippie, just walk around and enjoy the wild side of things. Crazy colors, interesting assemblies, beautiful park, and well, hippies. I can't ad lib much more here!

If you are wanting to see one of the best neighborhoods in San Fran, take a stroll here. The shopping is wonderful, and the restaurants are many:). People watching is also a pleasure. If you love the hippie or counter culture you should check this place out for sure.

One of my favourites from past years but doesn't have the same allure - it was more of a trip down memory lane but I still love the feel of history and the wonderful buildings

My parents never let me come here in the 60s! I read a bit about the history and buildings before driving through, just to see what I'd missed. I did enjoy seeing the fishnet-clad legs protruding from the Piedmont shop near the intersection and found it amusing that Ben & Jerry's has an ice cream store right there. I'm glad... More

If you know, experienced, or have read about the 1960's and San Francisco, then Haight-Ashbury definitely has to be on your "must do" for any visit to Bay Area. A number of interesting shops in the area now, but you just can't beat the historical vibe.

What is this neighborhood? Hipster stores, homeless people, junkies, drugs, a few good places to eat, and tourists. Moodidoo indeed.

I didn't want to go there but my girlfriend convinced me. It was great decision. Totally different part of the city. Nice architecture, very unique and original shops, lots of bars and cafes.

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
