A Great Spot.

We jumped off the Hop On Hop Off Bus and walked up two blocks to get here. It was worth the walk. Great views of the city and. Definite photo stop.

This was definitely an experience. I would highly suggest walking it instead of driving though. Our GPS took us to Lombard Street in a weird way to get to the top of the windy road in order to go down the curvy part we had to drive up this insanely steep hill I was so terrified I was holding onto...

Again, my boyfriend loves The Rock so he had to go here. By foot. At the bottom of it. So we climbed all the way to the top and then went down on the other side to see some classic local houses. Fun to watch, fun to walk.

I loved just walking around the different neighbourhoods in SF. - so I would recommend walking past Lombard str., maybe on your way to the north harbor. I even continued to walk all the way out to the bridge. Do it if you have the time.

just a quick stop off the Powell n Hyde cable car. Well worth the stop to see the crookedest street in the world!

If you must visit Lombard Street, please do yourself a favor and go on foot -- take a cable car to the intersection of Hyde & Lombard Streets and walk down. You'll see and enjoy more without contributing to the traffic and pollution that is displacing local bird life. Better yet, spend your valuable time touring really worthwhile attractions in... More

I jumped on the historic cable car to get there. Maybe huge expectations, maybe eager to see in real, I've been completely disappointed. Not worth even the trip. The best part was the view of San Fran from the cable car till there...

It's great fun visiting this street and watching the cars wind down! Good photo opps too and you get some great views of the city from the top of the road

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.
