"Views from the Crooked Street" Lombard Street Tip by wilocrek

Lombard Street, San Francisco: 137 reviews and 230 photos

Some of the best scenic views of San Francisco and Coit Tower come from the crooked section of Lombard Street. The views are better appreciated from outside the car while walking up or down the crooked streets. In one sweeping view from left to right you will see Coit Tower, North Beach, and the Financial District. Plus nothing beats being at the top of the crooked street on Hyde and watching the trolleys stop with the skyline of San Francisco in the background. Plan on spending some time hanging around Lombard Street!
