Upper Haight, San Francisco, California

See the San Francisco Guide ›
San Francisco , California's insider take:

Although Haight-Ashbury was once the epicenter of the Summer of Love, little now remains of hippie counterculture other than shops peddling tie-dyed T-shirts and psychedelic bongs. Skirt-and-sweater matrons may find it vulgar, but teenagers in their Jim Morrison phase dig it. Wander past 710 Ashbury Street, the Victorian where the Grateful Dead lived, and stroll in the Panhandle, where Jimi Hendrix gave a free concert. These days, free love has yielded to costly clothing and shoe boutiques, although the amazing Amoeba Music is still beyond groovy.

good area from 10am-5pm

after that better to have your own cop or bodyguard. Most of the stores are close and the one that are open are selling pipes and alcohols. more
