Awesome street, a must see, but be prepared for huge crowds. Walking to the top and then being able to look back and see Lombard Street, the hills, and the water front, was amazing.

If you choose to walk to Lombard street. You need to be in shape, wear sneakers and be ready. The walk is steep and very strenuous. I work out a good bit and it took its toll on me.

You can walk or drive it. It now has full time policemen directing traffic as the lines on long. I can't imagine how the people who live there can stand it. There are two cable car routes on either side.

After you have driven Lombard--during the weekdays when access is much easier and wait times are minimized, try walking it ( up or down.....or both) to get a different perspective. You can then spend the day exploring the Pier Area and the small beach area...More

Great little drive to make you appreciate San Fran a bit more. I would hate to live on that street tough. The tourists never stop coming I bet!

Beautiful street and worth the visit. Very busy. We turned right at the bottom and found a little park with concrete stairs going back up to where we started.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
