"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.
Notable places to visit when in
the Haight is Duboce Park, a place where you will
see many dogs enjoying their time outside. Restaurants
worth visiting is Squat & Gobble Cafe and
Crepes on Cole. During your San Francisco tour
from San Francisco Comprehensive Tours you will
have an opportunity to stop and walk a little
bit in the Haight.
