Our Uber driver treated us by taking us for a drive down Lombard Street – a famous east-west street in San Francisco. This street is not for the faint of heart. It is a one block section that is very steep with eight zig-zag turns; it is downright scary. No wonder they call it the most crooked street in the... More

Best way to do take a taxi ride down the street as you get the best view and feel for the amount of turns on the street and take pictures from the top down and bottom looking up

It is an amazing crooked brick street. Cars are parked there too! The flowers in front of these homes are beautiful hydrangeas and roses.

I would recommend looking from the bottom up the hill, from the top of the hill, you can't quite appreciate how crooked the lines are. A good idea that I saw others do was hire Uber (which there are plenty of in SF) and get the driver to drive you down the path, this way everyone can get the full... More

This is interesting for about 5 mins. Nice to see but it's a long walk to see a bit of roadway. A solid meh! from me.

I hadn't realised there are houses either side. Start at the top and walk down or do it again vice versa, it is though a steep climb. You cannot walk on the road as its only for cars. You walk straight down on either side.its crooked but I though it would be also a lot more A must see and... More

This is the steepest street in the world worth a look just for that. Costs nothing and if you are at the top you can walk down this side by way of the steps. Free and attractive.

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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 homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
