"Lombard Street" Lombard Street Tip by GUYON

Lombard Street, San Francisco: 8 reviews and 12 photos

  Lombard Street

Favorite thing: Between Hyde and Leavenworth, Lombard street snakes to reduce the slope of street which was 26 pct and becomes 16 pct thanks to the curves. So the horses were able to climb the street.
Now, it is a one way street (West ---> East) and a lot of drivers use the way only for fun.

It is also famous because it is covered of flowers. A French guy, from Limousin, had the idea. He leaved at the 1010.

Fondest memory: Several films show a car pursuit in this street.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
