One of San Francisco’s most popular landmarks to visit is Lombard Street, or “The Crookedest Street in the World”. Millions of people visit every year, either walking or driving through the twists and turns of this road. But, to add to all of that, it has some of the best views in all of San Francisco. When going down the street, you’ll see the roads and buildings of San Francisco, as well as the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge, one of the most famous bridges in San Francsico.
Lombard Street is close to a lot of other popular tourist attractions in San Francisco, like Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown, so it won’t take a long time to get there.
However, if you plan to walk up Lombard Street, be prepared for a bit of a streneous walk; the road is very steep.
