The district has houses with multicoloured façades and a relaxed atmosphere. Known as being an alternative area of San Francisco, it is full of unique 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.
