At the end of 1960, Haight-Ashbury was one of the areas where a bohemian movement was born; that of the hippy idealists who practiced a kind of life in harmony with nature and promoting human values. The district has houses with multicolored facades and a relaxed atmosphere.
This alternative zone of San Francisco is full of "different" clothing stores, artisan shops and bars where you can hear live music.
A large part of the charm when visiting this district comes from simply observing the unusual characters that live in the area.
Haight-Ashbury is found nearby the Golden Gate Park, and so the best option is to see both places on the same day.
We recommend visiting Haight-Ashbury during the day. At night the atmosphere could be less appealing to many.
