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.

Looking beyond the overpriced vintage stores and overwhelming smell of urine, what was most disappointing was the feeling that I could have been in any-beach-town-USA with the smoke shops, cheesy t shirts, and the large pungent vagrant population. The love is gone, in fact the feeling that permeated was one of desperation like 'this isn't fun anymore but it's too... More

I took a city tour and it included Haight-Ashbury. I took some awesome photos of the graffiti/artwork on the buildings. The homes and businesses are cool to the nth degree.

A few blocks of shops and restaurants. Would not go out of my way to visit. The 60s ended a long time ago, they don't live here anymore.

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

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

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.
