Hippies may be the most famous symbol of the 1960s, but they only really became popular in the early 1970s, when their numbers and influence peaked.
One of the myths related to hippies is that they lived only in coastal cities or rural communes.
The earliest surge of hippie culture took place in coastal cities such as San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, but almost every city had a neighborhood or public place where hippies hung out.
Many people think hippies with flowers in their hair were at the heart of the antiwar movement. However, antiwar protesters and hippies were usually two different groups.
To many, hippies were associated with free love, but that was more legend than fact.
While hippies were more sexually adventurous, they mostly stuck to heterosexual monogamy. The parties where people would smoke or drink too much and sleep with their friends had repercussions the next day.
It's less the case that hippies died out, and more the case that all of us became hippies. The number of countercultural practices once seen is now widely accepted.
