San Francisco's most recognizable street is also one of its most crooked

The famous twisty-turny section of Lombard Street, which takes up the block between Hyde and Leavenworth streets, boasts eight hairpin turns. The Russian Hill destination is popular with tourists, so you may hit traffic — but since the speed limit's 5 mph, what's the rush? Footing it allows you to more closely ogle the beautiful houses and lush gardens along the route. (The residents are used to the attention.) A panoramic view of the bay rewards you once you reach the top of the street.
