You must see it to believe it. A steep, winding small street to goes from the top of the city to a much lower area below. We drove down it, a winding slow curve back and forth, passing owners houses. Magnificient!

This attraction is probably best seen and experiences on foot. We drove down Lombard street and got to feel how windy it was, but that's about it. There were tourists in the road that we waited for, so they could get a great picture of us almost running them over, on a windily street. If you are in the area,... More

Did not drive Lombard Street but I just had to see this historic street. Saw it from the bottom while walking from Telegraph Hill to Fisherman's Warf and from the top while catching a trolley when travelling from Ghirardelli Square to Powell Street. Nicely landscaped and a lot of turns.

We walked instead of drove. Long steep walks, very tiring. View from top is very rewarding. The crookedest street is very interesting and very crowded. Long queues of drivers slowing down the slopes, taking pictures, resulting in slow traffic. Other visitors standing in the middle of the road, trying to get good pictures from the bottom of the slope. Can... More

The first time I went down Lombard was with my mom, dad and sister in June 1974 in our motor home! It wasn't a 36 footer but was around 27 feet and, yes, we had to pull up, back up, pull up, back up, til we got it down! Lombard Street (it's one block winding stretch) is simply fun! An... More

We drove up the street as it was a very long que to drive down the windy street. Luckily we managed to get a few photos, but it is a very busy street at both end, so be prepared. Other tourists were being quite ride barging people, out of the way, so be ready for a pushing fight, I certainly... More

It's a road with hairpin turns. You wait forever to drive it. Tourist lacking common manners feel it's acceptable, or that they're privileged, to simply stop and hold up traffic to snap pics. I was told later by a local that we should have taken a side street and then merge at the top rather than wait in a long... More

We went to Lombard St using our Big Bus pass and while it was quite a walk from where the bus dropped us off to the top of Lombard Street, it was well worth it. It was fun to see the cars work their way down the street and all the tourists on the road taking photos. It certainly is... More

This was my 2nd time . On this trip we didn't have a car so we took a trolley car to the top of the hill. We got off the trolley and too our surprise. They were shooting a upcoming movie about the San Francisco earthquake in 1989 . Make sure you visit this crazy cool street . Dallas,TX
