Ah, the infamous Lombard Street.
It’s practically on everybody’s bucket list when visiting San Francisco for the first time. And with good reason. I mean, it has been claimed to be “the most crooked street in the world.”
You want to know what’s even better than driving [extremely slow] down the eight hairpin turns?
RUNNING DOWN THEM!!!!
That’s exactly what we did when Grace was visiting not too long ago. Although this meant having an early wake up call, it was totally worth. To be able to race down the curves on foot — it was priceless.
Once we finished having our dose of “touristy” fun, we continued strolling through the neighborhood, soaking up the gorgeous morning light.
This time of day is my absolute favorite. I love how quiet the streets are. Since the city hasn’t quite woken up yet from the night before, everything seems so calm and tranquil.
Not to mention how lovely the skyline looks as the sun rises above it.
San Francisco, you truly are a beauty. I love falling in love with you over and over again.
