Haight Ashbury was the center of the counterculture movement (home to the Grateful Dead, the Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic, and the hippies of the 60s). The neighborhood still holds strong traces of those free-spirited days, supported by a brand new civic awareness and neighborhood pride. Tourists from around the world flock to Haight Street to check out the exploits and they usually find plenty of it.
Stylish and on-trend boutiques like Upper Playground, Buffalo Exchange and American Apparel sell sophisticated and trendy wears. Independent record store Amoeba Music offers a broad selection of music, movies and books; and hosts free in-store performances. At the epicenter of Haight Ashbury is one of the most extraordinary crossroads in America. When the bustle of Haight Street proves to be taxing, Golden Gate Park, with the sophisticated de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences can offer a quiet and tranquil break.
