Took the Cable Car to the top of Lombard Street. Got out and walked all the way down. Absolutely beautiful view. Would definitely do it again. Maybe next time we’ll walk up.

We drove Lombard Street in our car and, while it was fun negotiating the zig-zag shape of the road, we didn't actually get the visual perspective that you see in the pictures. Worth a look though!

Lombard street is very long. But eventually you end up meeting this snake-like incline, full of plants and flowers. I would not rate it as the most beautiful attraction of San Francisco, but it is definitely worth seeing it. Also, I would advise tourists to...More

My boyfriend and I visited this street on a weekday to avoid crowds. We walked down, walked up, then drove down. The houses that line the street are absolutely beautiful and the views from the top are gorgeous. This is a must do while in...More

There's hardly any other street that looks like this, so while you're in San Francisco, go take some pictures or even try walking up and down the street.

I was always wanting to see this road in the flesh. I walked down it and am glad I finally got to be there.

Massive traffic jams and mobs of tourists ruin this once interesting view of San Francisco. So many more accessible sights to see in the city. Tour City Hall, enjoy the Castro or catch a ferry over to Sausalito. I wouldn’t bother with Lombard Street.

This is such a fun, and better yet, FREE attraction to check out. You can always take a bus or car but realistically I highly encourage those that can to walk there from Cout Towers, and do a walking tour of the City at the...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!
