HAIGHT & ASHBURY, SAN FRANCISCO: Legs hang out the second floor window of this shop near Haight and Ashbury. More that forty years after the “Summer of Love” this neighbourhood still has some of the feel of the old “Hippie Haight.” Pipes, tie-dyed shirts and vinyl records can still be found in the shops of this must-see community. It’s located en route from downtown to Golden Gate Park, one of the best urban parks anywhere. While in ‘the Haight’ cruise by the former homes of Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and… Charles Manson.
