FIRST LOOK

“San Francisco is 49 square miles surrounded by reality.” PAUL KANTNER Jefferson Airplane Guitarist

Eight hairpin switchbacks and the downward pitch of the commonly known “crookedest street in the world” have made Lombard Street a must-drive for visitors. The quarter-mile downhill stretch is lined with gorgeous gardens and barriers to ensure that drivers maintain a speed of 5 miles per hour—and with those turns, it’s advised! Those who simply walk to the top of the hill are rewarded with sweeping views of Russian Hill and Coit Tower—and a walk up is less time-consuming than waiting in line to drive down. Lombard Street, between Hyde and Leavenworth streets 16
