Play a city game where you will follow clues to discover the rich history of San Francisco’s iconic neighborhood Haight Ashbury, the epicenter of the 1967 Summer of Love. 

Relive the revolutionary youth-led movement that was characterized by hippie counterculture, freedom of expression, and social justice. Visit the locations in which music legends like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and The Grateful Dead performed free concerts, the homes where these iconic figures resided, and the parks where thousands of young people participated in peaceful demonstrations. 

Are you ready to be immersed in the world of peace, love, and rock ‘n’ roll?

Please note that this game ends in a different place than it starts.
