25 Hippie Hot Spots of the '60s. However en vogue it may be, this generation didn't invent the bohemian living. Way back in the '60s, free-spirits wandered the globe to promote their rhetoric of peace and love while also shedding their worldly attachments. The bohemian lifestyle wasn't easy, but the hippies of the '60s and beyond loved it.
