    In 50 years it went from the Summer of Love to a lame tourist trap and shopping plaza.

    It is like a "Rua Augusta" here. I recommend you to go to the "Land of the Sun" and talk to Paul. He is incredible and he can tell you stories about Hendrix and Joplin and a lot of the 60's scene here

    You would think that these dirty hippies would be better at playing the guitar with all there free time. But alas they are awful. Tip here is don't do drugs and stay in school kids.

    There is a Psychedelic History museum on Ashbury in between Haight st &Page st. It's also a bed & breakfast called The Herb'n Inn. The gate is In the form of a fork, knife and plate! Truly special!

    Dirty hippies and street kids. Awesome consignment shops. Sort of smelly. If you get ice cream I recommend a bowl not a cone. That stuff melts fast.

    Its like Disneyland, but instead of getting a picture with Mickey and buy a pair of mouse-ears, you get to know faux-hippies and buy tie dyed tshirts. Oh, consummerism at its best.

    A very cool collection of shops, bars, and restaurants. However, be prepared to be bombarded by bums, people from green peace, and people trying to save planned parenthood. Really annoying...
