The intersection famous for the start of the original hippie movement in the the 1960s. The area keeps the hippie vibe alive with vintage clothing, coffee and trippie shops radiating out from the intersection.

The 60s still hangs in the air on Haight-Ashbury, seen through boutique windows displaying tie-dyed garments and an extraordinary number of weirdly-shaped pipes. The thing I love about this area, though, is its unmistakable community feel. Everyone knows each other here -- a pleasant rarity in such a big city. I recommend spending an afternoon perusing the shops before grabbing coffee in one of the many cafes along the way.

You can't not go to see the famous Haight-Ashbury. If you're expecting something super exciting, you'll be disappointed. it's just a street intersection with shops on it. It's what the street means that makes it powerful as you walk down it.

Famous Hippie neighborhood in SF. It's colorful with a lot of unique shops, where you'll get cool clothes or souvenirs.

I live in this neighborhood and am a fan. Yes, there are homeless people. No, it's not the cleanest street in the city. But there is an incredible amount of variety in terms of places to eat, drink, shop and wander. Alembic, Magnolia Brewery, and Toronado have some of the best beer selections in SF. Cha Cha Cha has food to die for. There are great legitimate thrift stores like Wasteland and Buffalo Exchange, as well as some higher end vintage thrift stores. Don't forget to wanter a block down to beautiful Page Street, tree lined and full of beautiful houses. Another block down and you can wander along the panhandle! Great area overall.
