San Francisco is celebrating an anniversary in style. It’s the half-century mark for the Summer of Love – the 1967 counterculture phenomenon that drew nearly 100,000 young people to the city’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. So the city is once again bringing on the dreamers and hoping they’ll find plenty of reasons to put flowers in their hair.
To make sure that these modern day pilgrims find peace, love and a good night’s sleep, San Francisco Travel offers an online guide to 10 hotels with special Summer of Love offers at www.sftravel.com/sf-hotels-summer-love-packages.
Each hotel features a different package. Summer of Love-themed amenities in some packages include a flower for your hair upon arrival, a commemorative Summer of Love celebration magazine, a Summer of Love-themed evening turndown, a welcome cocktail for two, San Francisco CityPASS booklets or tickets to the “The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll” exhibit at the de Young Museum (through Aug. 20, 2017).
