    Lombard Street in San Francisco is one of the city's most crookedest streets paved with red bricks and beautiful flower beds and featuring eight hairpin turns downhill.

    An east–west street in San Francisco, California that is famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns. It's also a well groomed garden.

    Beatiful by the sunset. Also, I would prefer going there on Summer or Spring so that beatiful greens and flowers are out there. On winter, it seems a bit abandoned without colors :)

    Not the crookedest street in San Francisco as the nickname suggests, but if you're visiting and have the time it shouldn't be missed. Lovely views from the Hyde Street end (top). Signed, a SF native.

    World's crookest street. Definitely a must. Snap a few photo at the top and bottom of the street. It's a one way. So after snapping yourself some photos, drive down the crooked street.

    Get a Powell/Hyde or Powell/Mason cable car from Market st./Powell or further to Lombard st. to quickly cover both historic cable car and the famous slope.

    Interesting drive down this incredibly winding street. Very pretty when viewed from leavenworth street. Make sure you go up the opp side of Lombard and take the winding path down.

    The vantage from the top of Lombard Street is one of the most iconic in the city. Fight your way through the crowd of tourists and get a nice shot of one of the most interesting streets in the world.

    take the cable car from Ghirardeli sq, and hop off at Lombard.it's tempting but save yourself the trouble of trying to take the best shot from up the street. The real photo deal is down the end of it.

    Board the cable car from Powell/Market Turnaround, make sure to get on the Powell/Hyde St Line, not the Powell/Mason Line. Only Powell/Hyde St Line will bring you to Lombard St.

    Famous for their crooked street. Vantage point is from the top with views of the city, alkatraz, and passing trams. Then at the bottom for a full view of the crooked street.

    Seriously one of the most amazing streets you'll ever see and a must have photo-op. It gets super busy so allow some time to get through and be prepared to brace the crowds!

    The view of San Francisco at Lombard Street is one of the most beautiful city scenery I've ever seen. The hill-like street with a lot of flowers is absolutely beautiful

    Winding its way through San Fran, Lombard St was built as a solution for cars that could not climb the 27% incline of the hill. Drive or stroll this famous road, but remember the speed limit is 5mph!
  • Tessa M.
    Tessa MalayanAugust 12, 2014
    Neat place to visit. Lots of tourists on the weekends so expect traffic around that area. Be respectful of the cops helping with the flow of traffic. They're trying to make sure no one gets run over.

    Take a drive down a curvy road. Would love to see the locals drive on this with an inch of snow on the ground. I rolled down it in a can, kidding, that's frowned upon.

    Hand your cell phone or camera to your passenger and maneuver the eight tight turns from top to bottom amid the famous manicured hydrangeas. Then look back up: The best photo ops are from the bottom.

    Take the Powell-Hyde cable car from Chinatown and get off at the top of the Lombard zigzag -- unless you like walking uphill. Continue your tour DOWNHILL along Lombard and up to the Coit Tower.

    Can't really see the sharp turns and steepness of the road (unless you're in a helicopter maybe?)... I would hate to live in these apartments with the non-stop tourists and cars!!

    Prior to implementing the hairpin turns, Lombard Street was originally a straight, cobblestone street with a steep 27 percent grade too difficult for cars to drive through.

    Nighttime makes for easy access. Regardless, walk up it's sidewalks to appreciate it's beauty and quirkiness (look back and enjoy the amazing view) and drive down it to say you've done it.

    It's commonly—but mistakenly—said that Lombard Street between Hyde and Jones is San Francisco’s crookedest street. The most sinuous street in SF is Vermont Street just south of McKinley Park.

    Lombard Street is the famous street in SF. With it's eight sharp turns it is the "crookedest" street in the world. Try not to laugh as cars "speed" down at 8 km/h!

    World-famous crazy-crooked street, as seen perhaps most famously in 1968 film "Bullit" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062765/) car chase scene. (Star Steve McQueen did his own stunt driving.)

    Try riding a bicycle down Lombard Street. You'll probably have to jump off a couple of times. You'll stick out and it's a very fun, unique way to experience the world's most crooked street.

    Don't take Lombard up from the bottom. You'll wait forever in the line of cars waiting to reach the summit. Instead join from a side street. It's only sort of cutting.
