Hardest Hairpin Turns: Lombard is famous, but Vermont Street (in Potrero Hill) is the city’s curviest street.
Top Urban Hike: Head to the Lands End Trail, running from Ocean Beach to Sutro Baths.
Coolest View: Coit Tower is a 210-foot spire in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood, with panoramic views spanning from the Golden Gate to the Bay Bridge.
Free (Hidden) Thrills: The Seward Street Slides, a set of concrete slides designed by a 14-year-old kid in 1973. For the smoothest ride, bring some cardboard with you.
