The walk can be rather too much if you are unfit but well worth the effort. The views from the top are fabulous. The day that we visited it was extremely busy as it was Presidents Day.

It was a must while we were in San Francisco didn't want to leave without saying "we walked it". I was really disappointed that there wasn't a cafe or coffee shop at the top it would have completed the experience nicely.

Lombard Street or the crooked street is a very famous attraction in SFO. You should definitely take a ride along the lombard street. The tram ride from union square to lombard street is fun as well.

This pretty and quaint street is well worth a see. The mere sense of achievement for walking the crazily steep Lombard street is worth the visit alone. The view of the bay and the well kept gardens make it a worthwhile trip also.

It's a very touristy thing to do but I feel it's more worth doing than fisherman's wharf. Yes all it is is a crooked street but it is famous for a reason. The view from the top looking toward coit tower is awesome. Do it once to say you drove it and move on.

Big deal a crooked street. .A New York City cabbie could make it down Lombard Street at 75 MPH and not brake until he hits the bottom. A big deal about nothing. See it from a cable car and then forget it.

Lombard Street is neat to see, during the day and at night! It is cool to watch the cars going down. When you are at the top, on foot and not in a car, you have to watch out for the drivers trying to go down it. There is a cable car stop at the very top of the crooked... More

This was a the top of my to do list while I was on vacation in San Francisco. I had seen so many pictures on the internet and when I got there it looked very disappointing! there were no pretty flowers in the gardens it was just dead shrubs. My advise if you want the pretty pictures go in spring... More

Famous sight to either drive down or just look at, flowers and shrubbery are beautiful, cool experience to drive down, I would definitely recommend this behind the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.

Lombard Street's hairpin curves really are surprising. I'm somewhat of a backseat driver and the steep drive got my attention as my husband casually drove along the switchback curves of Lombard. Spectacular panoramic views of San Francisco await you at the top - or along the way, if you dare take your eyes off the street. Lombard was closed to... More
