Marijuana’s biggest holiday is fast approaching. While it’s not on any official calendar, 4/20 is recognized as a day for cannabis celebration. With more than half of state legalizing some form of cannabis usage, there’s plenty to celebrate this year.
Here are some suggestions for places to visit on the holiday if you’re in the mood.
Hippie Hill, San Francisco
This iconic Californian destination earned its name from the counter-culture revolution during the 1960s. Hippie Hill still persists as a popular gathering spot for cannabis enthusiasts on 4/20 and with California legalizes recreational marijuana recently, it will probably only be a bigger celebration this year.
