Choose a holiday apartment in San Francisco Haight-AshburyEver since the 1960s, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco has been a center of art, music, and alternative living. The hippies may be gone, but this is still a seriously hip neighborhood to spend some time in. To really understand the Haight, many tourists rent vacation condos in Haight-Ashbury. This way they can come and go as they please, entertain guests, and see the neighborhood from a local's perspective.
The Summer of Love
During the 1960s, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood gained notoriety for its laid back community of hippies who supported free love, rock n roll, and recreational drug use. The summer of 1967 saw a huge influx of over 100,000 young and old people who flocked to the Haight to be a part of this popular subculture. This massive gathering was nicknamed The Summer of Love, and it was a catalyst for many social and political movements.

Today, the Haight is still a center for creative expression, but it has also modernized. Beside the bookstores and secondhand shops, there are now Internet cafes, trendy restaurants and boutique clothing shops. Visitors who book Haight-Ashbury accommodation can jog through the manicured parks, take a yoga class, shop for the newest deep house tracks on vinyl, peruse the latest imported Italian shoes, or sit back with a good book at a cozy cafe.
