We were slightly disappointed with Haight Street and felt like we had to watch our backs the whole time. There were numerous homeless people lurking around and the guy who helped us in the shoe store was definitely on something. The one place I can...More

Have to admit that my review is colored by the fact that this is where I lived during the Summer of Love, and a few before and after. The place was rocking then, every day was colored by some outrageous/serendipitous happening, the streets were alive...More

Fun place to visit. Retro: reminds you of the the 1960s. Bustling streets with may unique shops for fun shopping.

Had to take the kids there for the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. They are 11 and 13 and loved it!

The Hippies are gone, but the street people remain. Haight Street is the shopping street for what is now an upscale neighborhood with beautiful architecture. The mix on the street is eclectic with lots to see and entertain.

Stayed here while on a work trip. The perfect antidote to the corporate garbage talked at my meetings in the city. Great people watching

What a disappointment. While I knew what to expect, it was much worse. While this was the epicenter of the 60's counterculture, it now resembles a homeless shelter in the streets. If you like panhandlers, people bumming smokes, heavy police presence, pick-pockets, then this is...More

If you're into vinyl and second hand record stores, you'll have a blast. Haight-Ashbury holds a big place in the counter-culture movement to of the sixties. I suspect that it'd come alive on a guided tour, to understand more of the background. Definitely offbeat, it's...More

There are some cool stores like Amoeba and eateries like Cha Cha Cha, but it is infested with junkies and homeless and tourists. Lots of hassles.

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.
