Between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets
San Francisco, CA 94109
Lombard Street Description
This street doesn't just have to be seen to be believed -- it has to be walked down. Hint: Those great photos you've seen weren't taken from car windows. Plus, your kids will enjoy feeling smug as they watch the frustrated drivers honking and glowering as they snake their way down the hill.
Babies: Because of the very steep downgrade, if you're bringing a baby, you may want to drive then descend on foot with a stroller.
- Parking is a hassle. If you'd rather avoid the frustration, take the Powell-Hyde Cable Car, which stops at the top of Lombard Street.
