Nice jaunt for senior hippies

Nice walk around and pricey shops.Enjoyed poking around arts and crafts shop with prices reasonable with large selection. More trendy than alternative.

Haight and Ashbury are the names of 2 of the streets in this area. It's amazing just to walk through Haight and see the vintage/hippie/old unique shops (and incredible music and bookshops), and to watch the true hippie-thing happening. We read in a book that this was a hippie area, but we never thought we would actually ser so many... More

This place obviously has incredible history. Some of the best musicians of all time even lived here and I respect that. With this being said, it's now just a street of young homeless kids that are pretend hippies. I have no reason to go back. They had your stereotypical overpriced head shop stuff up and down the street. There's some... More

The Haight-Ashbury changed over the years, but it's still THE MOST eclectic and wonderful neighborhood in San Francisco. It's got everything, hippies, heroin addicts, LGBTQ, tourists, stoners, professionals, homeless, beautiful homes, pizza, burgers, tapas, bars, groceries, record stores, everything. Few places in the world are like the Haight. Parking is a bear, so just find a public lot. Every Bay... More

Most tourists visit only several blocks of Haight section of this legendary 60's hippy area, but there's more around. In that part you're about to see old records and book stores, stores of 60's clothes fashion, many bars,....people on the street playing music, but also many homeless, junkies and drunks, which isn't a nice scene, specially if with kids (my...

Drove by on our hoponhopoff bus tour. Saw Janis joplin's prior apartment and on the other side was Jimi hendrix's. Then stopped here to catch a bus. Lots of cafes and shops in this area. Flower power still very much alive here. Saw in September 2016.

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.
