About Haight-Ashbury

High-end boutiques and classy shops, trendy restaurants and cafes, and the long-revered pastel-colored Victorians of San Francisco's signature architectural style, distinguish the quaint neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury. Though it was once the setting of free love and the bohemian lifestyle of hippies, it is now the site of busy professionals, though it's not uncommon to witness a peace-chanting drum circle every now and then.
