Everyday, hundreds of tourists stop by here, walk up and down on the two stairs left and right of the gardens in the middle of that crooked street. Then there is the cable car that stops in the middle of Hyde Street if you are...More

I was so visited the Lombard street with a different ideia in my mind, because I saw pictures and I thought that was a bigger road then really is. the climb is very steep and it’s difficult to drove there. I didn’t like.

Fun to take family visiting down Lombard. Teens loved it. We took a lot of pics. If you are visiting during the weekend and the line is very long on Lombard go down Hyde north and turn right on Lombard. There will be no wait!

Lombard Street, better known as the "Crookedest Street" is just something you gotta do. Not a big deal; but still something you gotta do if you're visiting SF. It is an actual residential street with a beautiful landscape. You can drive or walk it. It's...More

Our taxi driver took us down--haven't done that in years. We followed a Segway tour so went a bit slow--able to enjoy the scenery a bit longer. We've also walked down a number of times.

Fun, neat, worth it! You can't drive down it but you can walk - a little crowded with summer tourists but still fun and noteworthy.

I would have never imagined a street could look like this - on a steep hill and with a lot of curves and lots of flowers on both sides. And a fantastic view of the city skyline from the top of the hill. It is...More

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

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
