Description:

Take a trip back in time to the Summer of Love, when the Haight-Ashbury was the place to be for hippies and peace-and-love-powered flower children in the know. Though its ‘60s heyday has come and gone, the Haight is still a lively, eclectic neighborhood with plenty of colorful attractions.

Meet your guide amid the colorful Victorians, vintage clothing stores, and funky head shops to begin your walking tour of this distinctly San Franciscan district. Watch street performers entertaining passersby, peek into the windows of unique shops, and learn about the days when the Grateful Dead called this ‘hood home.

A groovy mix of city sights fills the Haight and the surrounding area. Scope out '60s landmarks like Janis Joplin's apartment and Jimi Hendrix's flat, see the house on Cole Street where Charles Manson lived with several members of his “family” in 1967, and make your way down to Alamo Square to see the picture-perfect Painted Ladies across the street from the park.
