  • Address: 1000 block of Lombard Street, between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets
  • Hours: Open daily
  • Admission: Free

This leisurely winding block of Lombard Street is called the "crookedest street in the world.” Truthfully, though, Vermont Street in Potrero Hill deserves this accolade, but Lombard is much more scenic, with its red-brick pavement and lovingly tended flowerbeds, which bloom in full color during the warmer months. The angle is steep, for sure, so much so that the road has to zig-zag back and forth to make descending it possible.

Still, Lombard Street is fun to go down. If you drive, take the curves slowly and in low gear. If you’re walking, take staircases (without curves) up or down on either side of the street. Bring a camera, not only for picturesque view from the top, but also view looking up from the bottom.

Practical Info

This block of Lombard Street is located in Nob Hill, between Hyde and Leavenworth streets and a block away from Russian Hill and its pretty garden stairway. Lombard Street is easily accessible by bus and the Powell-Hyde cable car, which links to Fisherman’s Wharf attractions. Nearby Nob Hill attractions include Diego Rivera Gallery, Grace Cathedral, and the Cable Car Museum.
