Known as the “World’s Crookedest Street,” Lombard Street’s eight hair-pin turns zigzag between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets in the vintage neighborhood of Russian Hill. If you dare to drive this roadway lined with fragrant flowerboxes, take it slow and smell the roses. More than just one famous block, Lombard stretches across several neighborhoods on the north side of town, including Cow Hollow, Russian Hill, and Telegraph Hill—all the way up to the busy Embarcadero. Spend a quiet morning on the Presidio Golf Course, then cruise down Lombard from the Presidio to the pier with the waterfront always in sight. Stop for picture-perfect views of the city from the top of Russian Hill, and sample San Fran’s signature seafood dishes in Fisherman’s Wharf, where the world is your oyster on the half-shell.
