Had to wait a few minutes in line just to drive down the street but it was worth it. The drive is slow which gives you time to enjoy it. We stopped at the bottom along with 50 other people to take a picture.

Its a nice attraction to see while strolling in San Francisco Downtown. Loved the view of the water while going down hill right across the Lombard Street.

Beautiful, cuate and stoning experience that you can not pass if you are in San Francisco. Gardens are awesome.

Of course you will go see it, but it is crowded with people and cars. It really isn't that amazing and is much smaller than it looks in movies! The best way to get there is to take the trolley car which is extremely crowded and expensive. The trolley lets you off at the top which is nice because it... More

Far better to look than to try and drive down unless you like sitting in a queue of traffic! A must see when you visit SF for its uniqueness

I'd wanted to see Lombard Street since I was a kid so it was really a cool thing for me! It looks so crazy and I was really surprised by how lovely the street was! Beautiful plants and flowers! We drove our car to SF so we wanted to drive down Lombard. We'd heard it gets crazy so when we... More

This was a great place for a single visit. Traffic was TERRIBLE because everyone visiting the area want to go down the street. I couldn't imagine living on the street with all the tourists. It was a great one time trip to say we were there but wouldn't go again. Once it is your turn to go down the street... More

Originally built for horse & carts to allow a more gentle transition for horses hooves. Side friction & deflection at their best, the gradients of the properties access is done beautifully and the landscaping sets the street off. I wasn't expecting such a beautiful view of the water from here either towards Oakland. Easy walk from Fisherman's Wharf. Rumors were... More

Being a gullible Brit tourist I fell for the tram conductors leading statement when he pointed out Lombard Street as we travelled past. "What's the first" I asked. "Wall Street of course" came the instant practised reply! I have been to SF twice and each time I have driven down Lombard Street because you just have to do these things.... More

Loved driving down this crazy street! We went early on a Monday morning and had very little wait time. Teenagers & adults both loved!!

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood 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.
