Get to know Haight Ashbury in San Francisco
San Francisco became famous as a hippie-haven during the 60’s, and Haight Ashbury was the place they used to call home. The neighborhood, also known as ‘The Haight’, attracted many beatniks during that period, mainly due to its cheap rental prices and large availability of empty rooms. During that era it was the place to find illegal drugs and to explore psychedelic rock groups like Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead, who used to live there as well. Today some hippies still live here, and you can still find some vintage clothing shops, second hand stores and cafes, who give the area a unique flavor, even now.
