Haight Ashbury – The Summer of Love (Video)

“The Haight-Ashbury district is noted for its role as a center of the 1960’s hippie movement. The earlier bohemians of the beat movement had congregated around San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood from the late 1950’s. Many who could not find accommodation there turned to the quaint, relatively cheap and underpopulated Haight-Ashbury.[8] The Summer of Love (1967), the 1960’s era as a whole, and much of modern American counterculture have been synonymous with San Francisco and the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood ever since.” – Source: Wiki

I was lucky enough to travel to so many parts of California during my 9-day vacation there. I was visiting places all between San Francisco and Orange County, that’s about 8 hours from each other! The ride up to San Francisco was nice, beautiful mountain views and lots of land – which I love. We stayed most the time in Valencia, which is in LA county, a bit north of Hollywood. It was so nice there, a place I would move. Don’t mind some of the pictures, they’re of poor quality because I was taking them with my iPhone. 🙂
