This street has been in dozens of movies and TV shows. Plus, it was the subject of a Mythbusters episode. There isn't really that much to see here, just a street that's squiggly for a block, but it's fun to take a look and say that you've been there. If you're in Fisherman's Wharf it's a short walk (uphill, admittedly)... More

Interesting ride to Lombard St. on the cable car from Market St. very picturesque full of touristic photographers but you have to take some snaps if you're here and the Weather was great, quite a walk back though ;-)

Having driven down here many years ago, we walked down the street this time watching the cars working there way down this winding street. If you are driving make sure you go early as they do tend to que to go down, you won't be waiting long but go early and you can take your time and enjoy.

we jumped off the cablecar at lombard street, watched numerous cars wind down the road, and then jumped back on the cable car. It was neat to see.

I did the tourist thing and drove down Lombard street (you can only drive down it) then parked across the road and walked back up. It's steep in a car and even steeper when you are hoofing it on foot! This twisty road has been in more movies than I can count making it a must see destination for me.

A definite must, while in San Francisco! I would recommend going early in the morning, it is not as crowed as it is later in the day...although many cars drove down, we opted to walk, which is nice because you can stop & admire the beauty of the flowers & take photos at your leisure...

I came by to see the world's most crooked street while visiting San Francisco in June. For some reason I thought was longer. It is one block long but is still pretty cool to see. I did not drive down the street but did walk down and watch others drive down. I would definitely recommend taking a look as it... More

This is a landmark in San Francisco that everyone wants to drive or walk. My wife and I decided to walk up Lombard Street, and although it is steep we did not find it that hard of a walk. There is a stepped walkway on either side of the street which makes it a lot easier. The hydrangeas and other... More

But it is super crowded and I would NOT want to drive on it! I would suggest just going to see it, take pictures and going on with your day. Its definitely a San Fran staple and something you should check out while in the area.

Well...you can't turn back once you have started your journey on Lombard street. Who ever thought of this, and so many years ago. The drive down is amazing, and also incredible to stand at the bottom and look up to what you either just went down or happened across in your visit to SF. Don't miss it...

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.
