The Haight-Ashbury is San Francisco's most colorful neighborhood! It's even more spectacular when viewed through the filter of synesthesia, a rare neurological condition that fuses one's senses. Synesthetes experience sensations such as colored music and flavored words. You'll feel the Haight-Ashbury from a synesthetic perspective as we explore this historic district.
Our route will take us along vibrant Haight Street, past landmarks important to the 1967 "Summer of Love" and San Francisco's dynamic music scene. Then, we will stroll through lush Golden Gate Park to a post-modern observation tower nine stories above the city streets. Please join me for a fascinating walk through the hippy epicenter of 1960s counter-culture, the Haight-Ashbury!
