Visit a colourful neighbourhood after your flight to San Francisco

Haight-Ashbury

Once you’ve landed from your flight to San Francisco, make your way to Haight-Ashbury (also known as The Haight). The district was where hippie counterculture thrived during the 1960s, and eventually became the centre of where the Summer of Love took place in 1967. Today, you can still see and feel The Haight’s bohemian vibes through its numerous restaurants, bars, independent shops and record stores.

The Haight is steeped in rich history – dive into it and hear fascinating stories on a walking tour of the neighbourhood. You’ll learn more about what happened during the Summer of Love and pass by the former homes and favourite hangouts of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead.

For head-to-toe tie dye clothing and accessories, you’ll want to pop over to Jammin on Haight. A few independent bookstores line the street, giving book lovers lots to browse at local favourites like Booksmith or Borderlands Books.

After a full day exploring the neighbourhood, visit the nearby Buena Vista Park. The 36-acre forested park offers gorgeous city views and a peaceful place to relax.


Wander an urban oasis after your flight to San Francisco
