This picturesque stretch of Lombard Street has eight tight turns along a single block. They twist at very acute angles, making for very slow going if you are in a car. Although, oddly enough, cars were the reason for designing the street this way back in 1922, the idea being that this design would make it easier for them to negotiate the steep 16-percent grade. The drive is usually bumper-to-bumper and in the summertime, there is almost always a line of cars waiting to take the drive down. That being said, going for a stroll along this landmark is a good option, especially when the hydrangeas along the sidewalk are in bloom.
Spending a few days in Frisco sightseeing, trrying to do all the things one wants to do, i.e. China Town, Golden Gate, the Cable cars, Alcatraz, AND the Lombard Street experience. Unfortunately, That particular section of Lombard, which we drove from end to end, somehow evaded us!! From the Coit tower all the way down to the Presidio , and embarrased as hell, even asked for directions from two or three people and yet we never found the "curviest street in the world", I guess we'll blame it on the fog and the rain during our June trip. IT"S in the MIDDLE of the darn thing, who knew. Sure wish I looked at this sight before going!!!
I loved walking and driving down Lombard Street. The world's most crooked street is lined with beautiful landscaping and homes. If you visiting San Francisco it is a must see! It is a easy stop on trolley cars (F). Make sure to bring your camera/video camera to capture your moment.
I thought the landscaping was just breathtaking. Long wait to drive down 1 block! Feel sorry for the people who live here having a parade of people driving through their yards 24/7. But we did it twice!!
Loved everything.. I even bought an artist proof Kinkade painting of Lombard St.
That says it all.
Go if you can well worth it.
The city is beautiful and the food is wonderful. Espically seafood. The cable cars are a wonderful experience in itself.
I try to go once a year.
