While in the Haight getting a photo of the “Haight/Ashbury” street sign, walk a little over one block south on Ashbury to 710 and get a photo of the lavender colored home. The Dead lived here. Another piece of the 60’s history in San Francisco.

OK really it's just a house, but if you think about what went on there, it's fun just to snap a pic and say you've been. We ended up there accidently on August 9 - the anniversary of Jerry Garcia's death. Just being in the area reminded me of the music of the time - it was very nostalgic and... More

You've got to go and see it if you are a Grateful Dead enthusiast or Deadhead. The history is worth a read. Also note the banksy-esk pain on the sidewalk.

Really it is just a house on a residential street. If you know the stories its good to go have a look. I did it on location aware walking tour App (the Detour App), which I would highly recommend. I would not recommend the house alone as worth going out of your way for.

This is a normal house on the block unless you're a dead head! I would recommend snapping a few photos and leaving.

There's nothing really special here, if you're a fan of grateful dead is worth it to go and take a picture, it will be a nice memory. If you haven't heard about the band, you better have a walk around Height Ashbury to see the hippie atmosphere

Although this is in deed the house they lived in it is now someone else's home. Who has put up a gate but is still very nice. If you are a true dead head you'll enjoy it, don't go out of your way to see it in afraid it has no historical value. However the neighborhood is cool so get... More

So If you're in San Fran, taking a quick uber to walk near the corner of haight and ashbury is worth it... Just a sight to see, nothing special, more of a check off your list :) and while you're there, wave to the grateful dead house. Nothing really to do, it's just a suburban residence now days, but if... More

Like a lot of places with historic/cultural resonance, life goes on to obliterate any traces of what made them famous/gave them significance in the first places so that only those in the know are aware of what went on there once. So it is with the house at 710 Ashbury Street that was once home to Jerry Garcia and the... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
