Driving Lombard Street in San Francisco
Driving Lombard Street in San Francisco had always been on my bucket list. Lombard Street is one of the most famous in the world with its steep and curvy bends. Located just five blocks from the Fisherman’s Wharf, in the heart of San Francisco, up a series of steep hills, is the famed Lombard Street, which is often dubbed the "crookedest street in the world." At an elevation of 325’, Lombard Street takes you through 8 very steep and curvy switchbacks at a 27% grade, which means, for every 100 feet you travel, the street drops 27 feet. This is just a short video to show you this extraordinary road, one of the "crookedest street in the world."
