I don't think I agree completely on San Luis obispo. I've lived here my whole life, and it's honestly mostly old people who have retired, or college students at the university. Maybe you misunderstood all the college stoners for hippies? Because there is a big marijuana scene, but not much of a peace/love scene. Also, I'm surprised you said San Francisco wasn't really a hippy city? From what I've seen of San Fran, (which is a lot) it's very peace/love oriented. Just my opinions.

What is a "hippy"? IMO one can find old ones, with no tie die, regular bathing, jobs and so forth... Sit down and have a conversation about the way it was, and about the issues of the day is the ONLY way (again IMO) you will find a current modern day "hippy". Physical appearance is not currently part of the "movement"... Sure one will find some young and old with peace symbols and tie die, some sharing philosophy with the "hippy" some not... Some looking the role but not acting it....

Anyway, The question evokes more questions for me...

Just got back from spending a week in Mendo/Fort Bragg area... Plenty of old "hippy" folks around.. However, one would not know it by looks... It takes a conversation too discover it...

I will contribute West county of Sonoma county to the list... Anywhere along the Bohemian hwy. Many act hippy, some look hippy.. What ever that means...

Maybe for hippies with trust funds.

Big Sur but I've not been lately so maybe it's changed, which is what happened to Laguna Beach, hippie central when I was a kid.

Most likely Huntington Beach.

Placerville? Not on your life. Placerville may have one or two - all foothill communities do - but it's probably the least hippy-friendly of all cities in the Mother Lode. Except for maybe Jackson.

Nevada City, no doubt about it. Grass Valley not so much.
