A quick trip to see and walk up or down. Very interesting but can get crowed. You can get here by the Cable car as it is a stop.

Apparently not the world's crookedest street but pretty cool all the same. Online pictures do it justice, so if you can't get there in person, don't sweat it, but if you're close by its worth a look. We stopped by as pedestrians and later in the week took a spin down it in our rental. PLEASE don't be one of... More

Hopped off the trolley on Russian Hill and enjoyed the view with Coit Tower in background. Just a curvy street. Beautiful gardens and homes line this street. For a better view, go to bottom of hill. You can see the whole street. At night, try a long exposure photo as cars travel down hill. We will next time, can't wait... More

We really enjoyed this as a family. The only real downside is the pedestrians who stand, for extended periods of time, in the street taking photos.

It is a small and short street but it has a lot to enjoy. Walking down or driving a car (make sure you are a good driver) you'll have a wonderful view of the wharf in front.

We are new to Silicon Valley, so we are hitting the tourist attractions in San Fran a little bit at the time since we only live 50 minutes from the city. I was a huge fan of the early episodes of MTV's show The Real World, particularly the 1994 season which was filmed on Lombard. We arrived in San Fran... More

The climb up the street to get to this point is incredible. We walked from the water front passed the cable cars and up the street leading to the road. Always wanted to see it as I have seen it many times on TV. Many a car was making the journey down the road as we walked up on the... More

Lombard Street is a lovely street, some nice views from the hills and of course the crooked bends is a fun drive and a good photo opportunity. If you're in the area, it's worth stopping by.
