Old days have gone, but the hippie spirit is seen everywhere in the Haight-Ashbury Street in San Francisco. (People's Daily Online/Han Shasha)

If there's any area of San Francisco that evokes images of the long-gone '60s hippie culture, the Haight-Ashbury Street is it. In 1967's Summer of Love, thousands of young dreamers flooded here, which makes the area the birthplace of the hippie movement, marked by peaceful protests and psychedelic experimentation. Then the movement waned, but the legacy was left, which can be touched and felt now.
