Haight Street, San Francisco

3.8
Haight Street, in San Francisco, is the principal street in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, also known as the Upper Haight due to its elevation. The street stretches from Market Street, through the Lower Haight neighborhood, to Stanyan Street in the Upper Haight, at Golden Gate Park. In most blocks it is residential, but in the Upper and Lower Haight it is also a neighborhood shopping street, with residences above the ground floor shops. It is named after California pioneer and exchange banker Henry Haight (1820–1869).Structures and places fronting on Haight Street Booksmith Bound Together Bookstore Collective Buena Vista Park Chinese Immersion School at De Avila Diggers (theater) The Red Victorian

    I lived just off the panhandle area a while ago. So, I wanted my daughter to experience "the Haight". The odd shops and interesting places to visit are great! While the kids were looking through books...  more »

    Ladies, who was anyway at the painted, should quietly again forking the 20 minutes to Haight Street. Really a very different kind of district with quaint shops, many homeless people and hash smell wherever it goes. Can be already a little uneasy one. Here is dealt on the open road. Want to be an interesting mix of hip and be stopped somehow in the 80s.

    Five stars to support local. Good selection. Fruit and vegetables are good. Select carefully as often toward end of life in order to keep prices down. Especially raspberries!

    The produce section is fantastic, both high quality AND reasonably priced--I didn't know that existed in this city! I love the efficient use of space, I've yet walk out of here without finding what I was looking for. One tip I do have for the budget conscious is to identify organic vs conventional produce for the folks working the registers. They're busy and trying to be efficient, and I've been overcharged a couple of times by accident. Other than that though, if you're looking for a local place to shop with great value, this is it.

    Fantastic neighbourhood market with all the selections one could want! Not the Safe way kind. The deli sandwiches were at great prices.

    Best cheap sandwiches around. Great wine and beer selection. Every chocolate bar you can imagine. Enough kombucha to keep your Flora healthy until you die. Stop in before you head to the park for all of your picnic needs. All of the employees are super friendly and helpful.

    I shop here constantly. My wallet feels it. My wallet feels how when I walk in I'm immediately overwhelmed by things I want to buy. The clever positioning of the ice cream right where I can't say no. The fact that you have to walk through the wine section to get to the registers. All the organic brands my San Francisco heart is conditioned to covet. This is too much.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
