Explore the neighborhood known for its history of hippie culture that now hosts a variety of hip cafes, clothing boutiques, independent bookstores, and more. Also called the Haight or the Upper Haight, Haight-Ashbury is the perfect place to get a feel for the 1960s subculture that once defined the city. The neighborhood grew in popularity when North Beach became too expensive for bohemians, and was home to the likes of the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and other rock legends.
