Haight Street and Ashbury Street

Pick up the hippie vibe and perhaps a tie-dyed t-shirt

This historic intersection is one of the world’s most famous. It is where the hippie phenomenon began in the 1960s. None other than Hunter S. Thompson coined the nickname “Hashbury” in The New York Times Magazine. Local resident Wavy Gravy describes his “Upper Haight” neighborhood today as “a coexistence between the punks and the hippies, a little cutting-edge U.N. in action.” Today the Haight-Ashbury is lined with t-shirt and vintage clothing shops, inexpensive cafes, and the occasional head shop.
