Vibrant culture & history
Although a relatively small neighborhood, Haight-Ashbury is not short on culture! Known for its legendary 1967 “Summer of Love”, Haight-Ashbury helped to launch the careers of psychedelic rock bands like the Grateful Dead. It later served as a center for comedy and hosted up-and-coming performers like Robin Williams and Whoopi Goldberg. Today, the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair still attracts thousands of people to the neighborhood.
Beautiful outdoor spaces
San Francisco is known for its natural beauty, and Haight-Ashbury is right in the midst of it. The neighborhood sits along the eastern edge of Golden Gate Park, where you can find an enormous variety of attractions and activities—like the California Academy of Sciences, a Japanese tea garden, a botanical garden, a golf course, a bison paddock, a polo field, and miles of walking, hiking, and biking paths. The neighborhood is also directly west of Buena Vista Park and south of the narrow Panhandle park.
