We walk & watched & waved at wave of cars twist down Lombard! Folks in the cars waved back & were all smiles & happy their brakes worked! How many movies have used this location! It’s a classic experience!

Looks just like you have seen on TV. Best viewed from the bottom of hill - walkways on both sides of road. Never seemed too crowded but cars going down hill all day long.

Visiting and riding down Lombard is a must. Awesome view. It’s important to avoid high season and peak hours.

This is a must see if traveling to San Francisco. You can either walk here or take a cable car. I would recommend taking the cable car from Beach & Hyde to Lombard street for $7.

A very interesting place to see. Children stayed very curious about this place. We took the cable car and it leave us in the top of the street and we walked down the Lombard Street. Children loved it.

Most people have seen it on the movies at some point. It can be walked up/down but opted to take a cab down for the experience and to video the trip.

The street would have been a better sight if it weren’t for the tourists using the area like it was a fashion show. So many people were blocking traffic and not caring which made traffic back up a lot. This detracted from most photos. It...More

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!
