You can get the cable car to the top of this street. It's worth walking down and then taking some good photos at the bottom showing the curves of the street.

Iconic street in San fransisco must be seen on a trip to the city as so well known from the countless movies it has featured in. Gets very busy in the afternoons with cars queuing to drive down the hill. Best bet is to get a cable car from the waterfront and get off at the top and walk down the steps. Best photo opportunities are from across the street at the bottom of the windy section of Lombard street.

What a great experience. The street is just what you'd expect...a curvy street. But it's so much fun to walk down. Either walk or ride the bus on Hyde St to Lombard and then walk down to Leavenworth. If you are at the north end of Hyde St, the walk is up...and I mean straight up 4 blocks of very, very steep hills. I walked it and it' rough but it was also fun.

Take a slow drive down this crazy road but be careful not to run over fellow tourists on the way ! The gardens are beautiful to look at too.

Drove down the street in our large rental SUV which was rather dramatic but pleased our teenager no end. Fun to do, and avoided all the tourists who just stand in the middle of the road for a photo.
