The former home of the Grateful Dead


 

 

  

"The Haight" is what Haight Ashbury is commonly known as. The name comes from the streets of the Haight and Ashbury intersection. The former home of the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and many hallucinogenics - even though it's way beyond these notorious times, Haight Ashbury is still a premier neighborhood to visit. With hundreds of shops and cool restaurants it's a must see. Today upscale boutiques and stores dominate the corners of Haight and Ashbury streets. In fact, on the corner of Haight and Ashbury now lies a Gap clothing store. But don't let that fool you, there's still plenty to see and do in this neighborhood.
