    Lombard Street

    by MartinR Written Aug 25, 2002

    The 'crookedest street in the world' Every driver should do it. If you follow Lombard from US 101 there are some very scary hills to drive up and down. Including one where the road seems to disappear as you go over the brow of the hill. It was getting dark when we did it hence and none of our photos came out.

    Take a drive down Lombard Street.
    They don't call it the 'crookedest street in the world' for nothing! Join the long line of out-of-state cars waiting for their turn to battle the many turns of this incredibly steep street. Make sure you have a car equipped with steering power - or very strong arms.

    by singjaz Written Aug 24, 2002

    One of my favorite places to visit in San Fransisco is Lumbard Street(the most crooked street in the world). It is beautifully decorated with flowers and you can drive down it or there are stairs next to it to walk down.

    Have your picture made on Lombard Street

    Take the Hyde Street cable car - it will let you off at the top of Lombard Street. Enjoy the walk down hill past the houses, trees and flowers.

    From World's Crookedest Street

    The city view from the top of the "world's crookedest street" is pretty good-worth the climb for me. This is looking east-see Coit Tower, and the Bay Bridge.

    Located in the Lombard street, it is certainly an interesting road. The street connects Hyde street and Leavenworth Street (one way direction).

    The second crookedest street in the US after Wall Street is worth a look if you're passing by on the cable car.

    Lombard street is nice for a photostop. It is said to be the most winding street in the world. When you look at the picture, you know why.

    Lombardstreet is a very unique street, I've never seen such a thing before. We drove down there, well, me and my dad did. My mom got out the car and waited for us at the end.
