Haight

Haight-Ashbury

1969 Revisited and Revamped


Must See

Address:
Haight & Ashbury Sts
(along Haight St, between Masonic and Stanyan Sts)
San Francisco, CA

Description

Famed as the cultural nerve-center of the 1960s hippy movement, the modern-day Haight-Ashbury preserves much of the verve and style that defined it during the 1967 "Summer of Love," but now adds to the mix a healthy dash of Capitalism. Alongside spike-headed punks and grey-headed burn-outs, you'll now find trendy retro-clothing stores, fantastic ethnic food, mellow sidewalk cafes, exotic boutiques, ultra-hip clubs and bars, used book crannies, and cavernous music stores, including San Francisco's deservedly-famous Amoeba Music. Though somewhat grittier than other spots around town (thanks to its location between two city parks), the Haight keeps alive the spirit of the era that created it, and it is a worthwhile place to check out--even if it's just long enough to have a coffee and reminisce about the good ol' days.
