Beautiful street with stunning flowers, landscape and homes. Many people walking down also. Not sure it is truly the world's most crooked street. Burlington Iowa has a more tight and compact crooked street.

Like the title says, twisty Road but what surprised us was the nice gardens. How they put up with everyone walking and driving down their street I don't know but then if you buy a house on Lombard Street you know what your getting. It's...More

Beautiful street! Just as you see it on the movies but it does have very busy cross road and there are lots of people. But view and the high of the street is great!

It's a wiggly street. Take a picture on the way to or from pier 39/fisherman's warf. But apart from being "special" it's nothing to see. Walking from the pier to see Lombard Street is quite the cardio workout

When we took a cab, the cab driver took us down Lombard street in the morning so it was not much traffic. This day it was a lot of vegetation so it was difficult to actually see the streets from the top and the bottom...More

Our Lyft driver took us down this famous street. Hold onto your hats & hold your breath! Very cool ride.

One can stay at this place. I stayed at the Buena vista hotel which was convenient as the Big bus stopped right at the hotel. One can walk to Pier 39 and fisherman's walk from here. It is about 30-45 minutes, but everyone in SF...More

This is a unique experience but you defintely want to come with a car with strong breaks. Ours weren't very good and we were a bit scared that we might just get into an accident LOL. A definte must see though.

Found this place by accident. It was advertised as The most Crooked street in the world. It lived up to its reputation. It was very interesting to just watch the multiple vehicles navigate the hairpin bends. I kinda felt sorry for the local residents though,...More

This road attracts tourists due to its steepness, windiness and iconic houses. The road can get quite clogged with tourists at times.

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

There are plenty of tourist sites to see in SF and this is one of many to considered a site to see. Keep in mind we walked from Fisherman's Wharf and it was a hike up I think 5 or 6 steep blocks, the type of streets you see... More
Is it advisable to travel from Union Square to Lombard by foot while pushing a baby stroller? Cable car and taxis might seem not possible so I guess walking is the only option but I'm not sure if its safe with a baby stroller.

after reading lots of great reviews many suggested taking a cable car to the top of Lombard Street and then walk down-- noticed several mentioned to walk back up to catch the cable car-- walking back up the steep walk would not be an option for us--is there any transportation at the bottom that can take us back toward fisherman's wharf- bus, cable etc t tanks

There're buses/ street-cars at the bottom of the street but it's rather steep walking down few blocks to catch the public transport so do take it easy & wear comfy walking shoes & enjoy the view.
