"Check out Lombard Street in..." SAN FRANCISCO Tip by Nobbe
SAN FRANCISCO, California: 51 reviews and 53 photos
Check out Lombard Street in San Francisco.
Located in the Russian Hill district, Lombard Street is known as 'the crookedest street in the world' because of its eight sharp turns on a 40-degree slope. The turns, known as switchbacks, were built in the 1920s to allow traffic to descend the steep incline. The street zigzags around beautiful flowers and shrubs and offers a nice view of the bay. There are stairways (without curves) on either side of the street for pedestrians. The descent begins at Hyde Street.
Address: Russian Hill Distric, SF.
