Got off the cable car at the top of Lombard Street and walked down the ramp to the bottom where you get the best view and photo spot. You need to get a photo whilst cars are coming down otherwise it just looks like a pretty street and you do not see the bends. Good place to catch cable car... More

I walked all the way up to the street. Considering the price of the cable cars, you are better off on foot. I enjoyed the steep hills and beautiful houses around the area. Careful going back down!

Be sure you are not driving a stick shift on this hilly drive, else you will lose control of your vehicle. Fun for kids to experience.

Awesome to see a street that you have seen in so many tv shows and movies. Can't miss seeing Lombard street. You will recognize many of the shops or diners.

But it's fun too!!!! First we parked the car at the top to get a few good pictures. Then we did it! We drove down the street. It wasn't as hard as it sounds. C'mon you know you want to do it!! Now you can say you rode down the most windy street in the world

How can you not go. It is a classic. Kids complained about walking up and then never stop talking about it. Driving down would be cool, but we did not have a chance. Yes, there are crowds, tough picture taking. But the view from the top is magnificent.

Great photo op! We walked down it, sidewalks on both sides of the street. Beautiful homes and flowers, of course the iconoclastic image is best taken from the base of the street.

Lombard is a fun, touristy thing to do in San Francisco. During non busy times, we would drive up just to say we did but it was more fun to walk. You can see the beautiful houses and flowers up close. This was always a must do when people came to visit.

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.
