San Francisco - The Height & Hayes Valley (Chapter)
This is The Haight & Hayes Valley chapter from Lonely Planet’s San Francisco guidebook.

- bringing the Summer of Love back to Haight St: wearing flowers, making a manifesto or singing freestyle folk songs
- planting pumpkins on a freeway ramp and harvesting gardening tips at nonprofit Hayes Valley Farm
- taste-testing 400 brews at Toronado, 250 spirits at Alembic and 200 rums at Smuggler’s Cove
- restaurants & bars
