You HAVE to walk at least "down" this street! It may be a headache for those who live on this street, but hey, it's so unique and beautiful. Even the grandkids walked it and we all admired the view from the top and coming down. One of the most unique streets in the good ol' USA!!

Get to the intersection of Hyde and Lombard and you'll be at the high end of the curviest street in America. Then you can walk the walkway downhill. Yeah, it may seem pointless but everybody needs to do it once.

Having seen Lombard Street many times on TV, we just had to take a look. However, we didn't want to spend much time there, so basically just took a look down to see what it was like. Good spot for photos of the city too. Beware of pedestrians if you are driving there.

I can't express how much I loved to drive the car on this spectacular street ! Can't imagine how somebody can build something so beautiful and special . As a tourist I enjoyed a lot, but what about the San Francisco habitants who live around this street? It is so bizarre and extraordinary in the same time! A must see... More

If your in San Francisco you cannot miss this free attraction, this attractive street, has great views, of the city when you walk to the top. Visitors from England may recognise it, from an ad on TV. You can easily get to Lombard Street via the Powell & Hyde Cable.

Great place to take photos. It's certainly a steep walk if you are coming from the bottom of the hill but well-worth it. It has a festive feel about it, with so many people coming to see it. Wouldn't want to live there though!

Lombard Street is a unique street with all those turns and slopes. It looks even better with full of flower blooming. I was lucky to be there in June. So you my also want to visit this place during Spring/ Summer time to embrace the beautiful place in best season.

My favorite part of visiting Lombard St. was driving over the hill on Lombard and looking down toward the "crooked" part of the street. You have to be careful not to hit one of the many photo takers standing in the middle of the intersection, but by going slowly over the hill it gives you a great view. The experience... More
