The top of the crooked street is a great place for taking photo's of the city and bay. Wasn't brave enough to drive down it but the small yellow GPS tour cars looked good fun and could negotiate the 8 hairpin bends a lot easier...More

I loved this street - so much fun. I caught the cable car and jumped off at the top then walked down and caught another cable car a few blocks away to get back into town.

Nothing like this anywhere in the world, simply have to either drive down or walk down, take photos and just suck in the unforgettable atmosphere.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
