Super fun impressive location

We loved going on this very unusual road system and the journey to it. It was fun and impressive to experience this place. A must - especially driving it.

Exactly what you'd expect. Not a long drive but cool to see. Interesting that people still manage to live off of this path! Be prepared to sit in line to drive down, or park nearby and walk to the Street to snap a photo.

If you are of an age where you remember Carl Walden and Michael Douglas (yes a very much younger version) chasing down criminals in cars with suspension softer than my granny's sofa, you may conjure a image of San Francisco involving impossibly steep streets with crazy jumps at every intersection. Such is Lombard Street even before you get to the... More

On our trip to San Francisco we decided to get to Lombard Street both with a vehicle and walking. It was definitely a fun experience and doesn't take up a lot of your time to do and see. It was very different and interesting from anything we've seen before so we decide to go there 2 days in a row.

Big hill to get up before you get to Lombard St, the tour bus has to drop you off a far way from the crooked St. You have to have a visit as it's fascinating to watch cars weave their way round.

Of course this is a must see/do when visiting San Francisco. We decided to walk from our hotel near the Embarcadero to the top of Lombard street. Not a far distance (less than 0.5 miles), but oh the hills! After that, we continued all the way down (and up) Lombard street to Coit tower. Many people also choose to drive... More

Lots to see and do with nice quant restaurants. It is a busy road but you can get to most of the attractions from this road, down to the pier is only a couple of block with all the sights and sound. Trollies and boats and such. Good location lots of off brand hotels and motels

Walking up or down is the best way to live Lombard Street. You can better appreciate the houses, the flowers, the steep road and the atmosphere. You can stop and do photos in any points you like. Driving through is ok, but you might find traffic at the beginning, you need to be careful of pedestrians not looking at the... More

Cool crooked road. We walked to it & drove it. Driving it is better. The city doesn't have a lot of parking available, so if you drive to it, drive down it. You see Ariel views in the online pictures but it's hard to get a picture of the whole road just standing there. Cool activity to do. Takes 10... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
