Where do I start? This city is everything you have heard of, and more. I have been there four times, and have always left craving for one more day. Or maybe a week. Or a month. I can't put my finger on what is it that I like the most. And I am sure I haven't even scratched the surface of it. Putting down some must-visits, which also have been some of my fondest memories of the city.
- Haight Ashbury Intersection - Probably the most famous intersection in the world during the hippie era. You will still see remnants of it all over the street. Strong smell of weed, incense, quirky vintage clothing and a few Indian/Nepali shops thrown in for good measure. Almost feels like stepping into a different era. The houses are very retro and in sync with the theme of the place. Go during the day though. It is eye catching and colorful. Also, the eclectic crowd could seem a tad unfit for viewing in the dark. Parking is a bitch, but then that is true for pretty much all of San Francisco.
