Get the Powell-Hyde Cable Car to the top of Lombard and walk downhill. The views are lovely, especially when viewd over the tops of the hydrangeas planted all the way down the zig-zag.

Is like magical how they built houses around the block is surrounded by flowers that is famous for a steep, one-block with eight hairpin turns.

This is something you need to try driving through. Something you see in many movies. It is spectacular, we drove twice just to feel it.

We actually stumbled on Lombard street while walking back from Chinatown. Yes, a long walk. The hill was extremely steep! Didn't capture a gd photo of it as too dark. Will definitely come back again!

Interesting little zig zag part of Lombard St between Hyde and Leavenworth that is quite unique and has become a popular tourist photo op location. Naturally being on a hill, it's a pain to hike up to, so probably best to Uber it there or...More

Always fun to drive this crazy street. A great tourist attraction. I can't believe people actually live on Lombard!

Drive down at night if you can. The lights on the bay bridge and coit tower are amazing on a clear night

We took the cable car to the top from Fisherman's Wharf, then walked down the street on the parrell stairs.

OK, you have seen it on TV and in the movies. But standing at the top it is hard to appreciate the size and location. The view from the bottom or from across the other hill lets you get a better view of the length...More

I've both driven and walked Lombard Street, and both offer different experiences. There's a ton of vehicle and foot traffic. It's a steep climb but there are stairs/sidewalks the whole way up. Definitely stay out of the road; it's very narrow for drivers! I can't...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

Yes it is possible. There are sidewalks, but it will be hard, the hills are steep.
