The road really is the crooked-est street in America. An easy must-see in SF. Driving down at a very slow speed riding the brakes was necessary and no less enjoyable. Pictures just don't do it justice.

We walked three blocks up the back side of the hill but it was still worth it. The views from the top were amazing and the street itself was amazing. There are a lot of people there usually and if you are looking for a streetcar ride one stops on the top of the hills.

Another must visit on a traveler's itinerary for SFO. One has to do it twice over - once driving in a car/cab and once on foot. The driving will give you the experience of how the locals negotiate it on a daily basis while the on foot experience will give you a chance to be a spectator, soak in the... More

We hired a yellow go car to tour around San Fran bay area and it was so much fun. We followed the tour around and then finally came to Lombard Street.

This was a fun stroll down a very lovely unusual street. Taking photo's from the top of Lombard street as well as from the foot. Not steep as there is a path on either side with steps.

We had a great time driving down Lombard Street, and then parking at the bottom and climbing back up. Seeing the cable cars up close too added to the experience. The nighttime view was spectacular!

Got a cable car just to nearby Hyde, located in Russian Hill.district Nice flowers and great view of bay for photo opportunities. The bends were constructed in the 1920's to facilitate traffic to descend the steep hill

We enjoyed the restaurants in Little Italy and had so much fun driving down the crooked part of Lombard Street especially since the view was amazing from up there. If you decide to try it I recommend going early in the morning otherwise you will be stuck in a queue as it gets very busy. Thanks for reading my post.

Fun to walk up and down. Good landscaping and view. I actually had more fun looking in the yards and seeing the fancy gates to people's homes and hidden gardens. I saw several that were photo worthy.

The curves and houses nearby are gorgeous, but we've visited on winter, so there were no flowers...but even worth the visit!
