Beautiful curvy street to walk or drive . Lovely views. Be prepared to queue if you drive but it doesn't take long. Well worth a visit.

This was a nice walk. Started it from 3 blocks at the bottom of Lombard walked all the way to Coit tower. Make sure you have on comfy walking shoes and you're in good shape. Take your time to look at the architecture of the houses and the beautiful foliage.

Have done it many times on the way to Fisherman's wharf and it never fails to interest. On one hand , it is a novelty and quite unique, on the other hand, it has great community atmosphere with wonderful homes.

We got off the bus at Van Ness and Greenwich and got a good workout walking up the the famous crooked street. It's just like you see in photos, only with more tourists! Definitely a sight to behold. There are beautiful houses lining the street. You can walk down the steps and turn left to head towards Fisherman's Wharf.

If you're in San Francisco, there'll be a lot of things to see and do. This is one of those things that you should check out and get some good photos of if you have time because it is cool! We walked from Ghirardelli Square (pretty hilly, good for the fitness!) and started off at the top of it and... More
