We took the cable that ran along Powell and Hyde. When we heard that we were passing Lombard Street we chose to get off and see the Street. It is something of an interesting site. To see this unique curved road, and the homes that surround it. Cars try patiently to drive down the street among all the tourists busy... More

Our Uber driver really made this a 5-star for us. After mentioning just wanting to see the zig-zag street, he somehow got us to a shortcut and drove us down in very exciting fashion. He said you can't just "see" Lombard Street, you need to "experience" it. Crazy how people actually live on that street, but they do keep their... More

it is nice to stop by and see the curvest street. it is very cute, however there are too many tourists and cars driving through which are spoiling your experience. also forget about taking a good photo, the slope is unfortunately not steep enough. anyway, the view from top of the street over the city is beautiful.

Was very cool to drive and see how those with much more money than us decide to park their vehicles in a very curvy street. Let's just say even a woman that curvy may not be the stereotyped appearance of attractive... Is a hallmark for the city and has made appearances in many shows. I would drive it again for... More

Loved driving down this crazy zig zag street. Can't believe the driveways that the residents need to navigate to park their cars at night in their garage. We also returned a few days later and walked down the street. It was great to see the beautiful landscaping up close and appreciate the views that the residents have , the houses... More

I highly recommend checking out Lombard street if you are in San Francisco. It's not too far from Fisherman's Warf, so definitely not a wasted trip!

Well we saw it...a little underwhelmed - it was much smaller than we were expecting. It takes a pretty significant hike to get to Lombard Street, not sure it was worth it, it's also challenging to get a good photo of the crooked street. This attraction is incredibly crowded - there were actually a few traffic officers directing foot and... More

Fantastic place. Very cool and interested. The drive up a little scary because it's very steep. When you get to the street it's breath taking. Gorgeous view fun an interesting drive. When u get down its fun to park take pics and walk up.

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.
