Lombard Street is a wonderful place to see but don’t walk uphill if you are my age):- famous for a steep twists but was very crowded for my taste

Iconic tourist attraction but in my opinion not a must see. Very little parking and lots of people in the street blocking traffic. Pretty good views of the city.

I’ve heard there can be a long line, but we just drove right down it with no waiting. If you are in the area, do it. It only takes a few minutes and it is very cool. My pictures can’t really do it justice.

Must visit if you are in San Fran, standard tourist fare and plenty of tourists, so go early if you can. Good views from the top (also at night). Tiring walking up the streets to get there though!

Another MUST SEE site in SF! Get OFF the cable car and watch, take pictures. Be sure to do this at the TOP and at the bottom. No other twon has a street like this! Who would want one!

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

Yes it is possible. There are sidewalks, but it will be hard, the hills are steep.
