  • For me, this is a horrible attraction. We parked our car, and we went to take some pictures, when we came back within five minutes, someone had smashed our car, and stolen everything inside.

  • This was one of the main things that I wanted to see while we were in San Francisco. The street was very interesting, and worth the trip down it. The view of the street from other parts of the city...

  • The steep twisting and turning street seen in so many films is well worth a visit. The gardens that run down the centre are well maintained and incredibly, people live there. The steps at both sides.....  more

  • A great place to visit. Marvelous design. Great views. If you are planning to visit by walk use tram. Otherwise please be ready to climb steep road almost 27 degree steep. For elderly better visit using tram or travel by car. Great opportunities for photography and must place to visit. Place is very clean and well organized. Once you come out of the street, you can find restaurants near by.
  • This street is famous because it is the most crooked street in the world. But also it is very beautiful. Summer and spring time is the best time to visit this place, while flowers are blooming. There are stairs that go all the way down. There you will see beautifully painted houses with beautiful doors. And everything in plants and flowers. I think this is one of the must see places in San Francisco.
  • I'm from Florida, totally flatland. Made this drive without any issues. If you are nervous, don't be. It was much less scary than you expect to drive down. It's easier than tight parking garages. Kids thought it was fun. Next time I'd have them walk down and race the car. There are nice sidewalks. It's really pretty. Beautiful views of the bay from that area. It's a quick visit, plan no more than 20 minutes. We found great parking at the bottom to get out and take some photos after driving down.
  • Unusual quirky winding street which has now obtained iconic status in San Francisco and almost certainly a "must see" for visitors to the city. The red bricked surface paving and bordering greenery gives it a charming, almost surreal appearance. Of course popular with motorists and pedestrians wishing to experience navigating and enjoying the wonderful views from this famous location. Especially romantic at night with the lights of "downtown" twinkling in the distance.
  • Lombard Street is a great place to visit. You can park at the bottom of the survey historic area or at the top. You can drive down the street or walk up or down on sidewalks that are in either side. Lots of great places to take pictures and a scenic area. The walkways have steps but they are shorter so the don't seem as tiring as normal steps.
