Located blocks from the famous Haight-Ashbury intersection of San Francisco sits one of the most famous houses in the city, most commonly known as the Grateful Dead house. First used by the band’s management, who also managed the house, they slowly started inviting members of the band to live at the house. The Grateful Dead resided there from 1965 until 1968, including the famous “Summer of Love.” There are many famous tales of the Dead at this house, such as member Bob Weir getting in trouble with the police for tossing water balloons from the roof. One of the most famous photos of the band was also taken by Rolling Stone Magazine on the front stairs of the house. Today it remains a major tourist destination, attracting dozens of daily visitors as an important piece of San Francisco history.
