Lombard Street, San Francisco

(4.3/5 based on 9,500+ reviews on the web)
Venture along the zigzagging curves and steep hills of Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world. Located in the heart of San Francisco, the winding street zigzags downhill past a number of historical Victorian homes and colorful gardens, making it one of the city’s most iconic streets. Take the cable car to the top of the hill and then wander down the street on foot to stop and admire the stately mansions, blooming flowers, and stunning views of the surrounding city.

  • Definitely worth the walk. This street has has many beautiful homes and gardens. This street has many hairpin turns, and watching cars travel down is amazing. Also atop this hill the photos are great....  more »
  • It was free but can get crowded. We drove though the street and it was definitely a fun experience. I would recommend everyone to try to drive though it and not just take pictures of it.  more »
  • A must to see and do in San Fran. Have done it both o foot and in car. You have to experience it in a car. And the view of the bay at the start of it is amazing. Only negative is it can get crowded.  more »

  • Pretty neat to check out if you've never been before. There's not much here other than the street though, it's busy with tourists taking pictures walking up and down and tourists driving down the street. Overall nice but nothing super about it.
  • It's a tourist spot. It's a really curvy and twisted steep road that you've probably seen in movies a few times. Not much to do but admire the excellent view from the top, the view of the street itself from the bottom, and drive the street to say you've done so. Give it a visit if you're headed to or leaving Fisherman's Wharf from/to the downtown area.
  • Is a nice place to see if it's your first time, probably one of the must things to do, but don't expect anything especial. You either walk up hill or drive down the curvy street. If a very popular place so expect to see lots of tourists taking pictures and stepping on the street.
  • Beautiful in the summer! Very crowded, high traffic, and the drive down only lasts a few seconds. I got out of our car to take photos from the bottom of the street. Try walking on the side instead if you want a longer experience - AMAZING view of the bay from here looking down!
  • 1 of my fav! Tips: Hyde Street cable car will drop you off at the top of the curvy street and walk down from there. I see so many tourist climb up from the other directions. Poor thing.
