Haight Ashbury, San Francisco in the 1960s – The Hippie Movement and Summer of Love

During its heyday, which culminated in 1967's infamous Summer of Love, young dreamers converged in the Haight by the thousands. Historians deem the neighborhood the birthplace of the hippie movement, marked by peaceful protests and psychedelic experimentation. The era's greatest luminaries, from Jerry Garcia to Allen Ginsberg to Jimi Hendrix, all lived nearby.
