“Fun to walk and drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We visited the crooked part of Lombard twice. The first time we drove down the street, that was fun. The second time we walked down and then back up the street, taking a lot of pictures. It was fun and interesting to see the beautiful red brick street and flowers planted all along it. We will visit again when we come back. Lombard is a must see for everyone who visits San Francisco.

“Yes it's steep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you've hire a convertible Mustang it's almost mandatory. Good views of Alcatraz, worth the walk, be careful not to get run over whilst taking photos like some tourists seem to be determined to do.

You must drive or walk Lombard Street - several times in your life!!
The poor people that actually live on the street, we won't think about them...

“Lombard Street, SF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I walked from Fishermans Wharf to Lombard Street - the view from the top of the street is awesome with a view of the city and bay in the distance. A must see while visiting San Francisco.
