Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco


The Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco generally encompasses the neighborhood surrounding Haight Street, bounded by Stanyan Street and Golden Gate Park on the west, Oak Street and the Golden Gate Park Panhandle on the north, Baker Street and Buena Vista Park to the east and Frederick Street and Ashbury Heights and Cole Valley neighborhoods to the south.

Known for its tie-dyed, flower power roots in the 1960s, Haight-Ashbury reached its height of notoriety in 1967 during the famous Summer of Love. The neighborhood at that time became a haven for hippies and influential psychedelic rock performers. Though it still maintains a slightly coarse, Bohemian vibe, Haight-Ashbury is now an eclectic mix of boutiques, vintage clothing stores, book and record shops, trendy Victorian homes.
