A short section of Lombard St switchbacks down a steep hill, earning it the title of the Most Crooked Street in the World. This place is very much meant for tourists, and isn't exactly worth going to. Still, there is a nice display of flowers there, which makes the place at least somewhat attractive. I wouldn't recommend visiting Lombard St. unless you have plenty of time to waste.

However, there is a good part to this place; if you head to the top of the street, you have a great view of the Coit Tower perched on the opposite Telegraph Hill.

Address: Lombard Street. Descent begins at Hyde Street.
Directions: Lombard St, west of Telegraph Hill; 10 minutes walking from Coit Tower
