I loved driving on crooked street. We visited this street in Mar 2014. The road is tortuous with building on both sides and there is lot of greenery as you twist and turn. I strong recommend this. Its fun to take pictures once you come down. Also the street can get busy during summer and especially during long weekend in... More

As one of the iconic sites of San Fransisco this is a must visit destination - however don't get too excited. It is after all just a very bendy road. On the plus side the residents do keep the gardens to its sides well tended and it's great for photo ops. If you can walk down it as well as... More

It was worth to walk to Lombard Street and walk up it. Great views and fun to watch all of the cars drive down it.

It's a very quick stop on your trip through San Fran, however, there's really no other road like it in America so if you have time (and it didn't take us but about 10 minutes to find and go down it), then you should do it. The road is very cool and the vibe from all the folks around there... More

It really is just like it looks in the pictures – crazy crooked. Amazing that Lombard Street has become a tourist attraction. Oh, and people actually live on Lombard Street. I would hate the constant traffic. You could spend a half hour in line to drive down this street, which only takes a few minutes riding brakes the entire way.... More

We walked over from Chinatown so we were walking uphill instead of down. Cool street and quite a workout to reach the top. Lots of car traffic headed down - but I think it was more fun to walk it. Once at the top, great views of the city and in the other direction, nice view of Alcatraz.

It's very nice to visit this street and have some photos. It can be visited by car, but I walked to it. Take care of your leg muscles :)

The twisty part of Lombard can be difficult to find (the cross street is Hyde--which isn't so clear from using WIkipedia or other websites). But once it is found, it's worth walking or driving down (just pray your brakes work well). It doesn't take long to decend the hill--maybe 5 minutes--but it is a unique, fun road of switchbacks.
