Lombard Street is famous for being the most crooked street and offering beautiful scenic panoramic views in San Francisco. It is one block downhill zig-zag stretch between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets. The street was built in the 1920s to reduce the hill's natural 27% grade steepness by creating turns in the road earning it the name “crooked street.”
The Powell-Hyde cable car stops at the top of the Street. Visitors can take a quick ride to the fisherman’s wharf or bustling Market Street. Riding the cable car in San Francisco is a must.
Millions of people drive or walk down the crooked street every year for its unique experience, photography, and breathtaking views of the city.
Walking allows visitors to stop and take pictures, and driving offers an exhilarating and steep turn-taking experience.
Buena Vista Cafe is nearby, where guests can enjoy their famous Irish Coffee. They also have additional tasty options.
There are famous houses there, including The Real World House (949 Lombard Street), The Montandon House (1000 Lombard Street), and Scottie’s Apartment from the movie Vertigo (900 Lombard Street).
