Lombard Street is known for its one-block stretch that features Candyland-like twists and turns. Between Hyde and Leavenworth streets in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood, Lombard winds down a steep hill in eight tight switchbacks. Motorists are free to drive down Lombard's one-way curves. Pedestrians can navigate the street using two sets of stairs that run along both sides of the road.
