Lombard Street reviews
It is a one way street with flowers on either side of bends. We do not understand what the fuss is about. more »
If you can stand waiting in a line of cars, driving down this winding street on a hillside is great fun. Lots of people park and get out to take a photo. But watch out for thieves who break into... more »
Really interesting, although a really short street. The homes are really beautiful, and one can get an incredible aerobic workout walking up and down those hills! The pic I took was from a perfectly level camera ... thought the car was gonna tip over. The more I see of San Francisco the more I appreciate the beauty, design, architecture and ingenuity that was put in to present such a masterpiece which is San Francisco.
Descending down Lombard street in a car was a pleasing experience. There's a great vantage point, colorful flowers, and many people walking down it taking pictures. The road is quite windy with many visitors and pedestrians. Cool place to visit in SF.
