Sometimes all it takes to make a road famous are eight, tight hairpin turns. This one way street was designed in this manner to compensate for the steep incline (27 degrees) of the hill it’s on. Traffic on the hairpin area is reserved for eastbound or downhill travellers. The street has received much attention in popular media such as in Alfred Hitchock’s Vertigo, the Simpsons, and an episode of Myth Busters Among Others. Lombard Street is one of the tourist attractions in San Francisco One Day Itinerary. You must visit this amazing tourist attraction in San Francisco.

  • Really cool to see. We walked up to the top of the street from a perpendicular street and that in itself was neat. We come from a much flatter city though. Waking down the side of the street - it was neat to see all of the convertibles people rented driving down. And the houses of people that live on the road as well. Worth the trip.

  • I so much wanted to see this! Beautiful curved road decorated with flowering plants along the side. You either walk up and down or drive down in you car. Both are wonderful! If you are in or around San Francisco, its a definite must see!

  • Quintessential San Francisco experience. Whether you drive down the windy one way Street or simply stop at the top or bottom to take photos, you know you're in San Francisco when you see this Iconic landmark. The drive itself is not very difficult and it will only take you 30 seconds from top to bottom. The street is beautiful with lots of plants and flowers planted all along just watch out for people wandering around as the area can get very busy.

  • A fun inexpensive experience! A great place for people watching! There were so many people standing in the middle of the road... The crooked part was beautiful and amazing view down the hill. Good hike too. We found some charming places walking towards the bottom of lombard street.

  • It’s a interesting tourist spot. The street is well manicured but the neighbors seem to hate the attention. It has great views of the city and there are plenty of other tourist attractions close to it. Being comfy shoes because the area has some very steep hills!
