It's only a few hundred feet long. We drove down it, but it was not that extraordinary. Just a windy street in the middle of some already-crazy hills.

What’s a trip to San Francisco without a stop to see Lombard St. It’s fun it’s pretty you can grab a cable car right up to the street and have a good time getting your selfies with the zig zagging cars in the background.

You drive up Lombard from Broadway. It’s steep. Then the road pitches down and it’s super crooked. Lots of cars. Pretty houses. Then it’s over. I guess if you haven’t done it and you’re in SF, then by all means go for it. But just...More

Unique, shimmering, steep street. Cable car ride to easily reach the Lombard stop and walk down to the Taylor street worth doing.

Long walk up some hills to look at another hill ha ha. No this is one of the sights of San Francisco and one you will have seen in the movies. Worth the effort for the photo.

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!
