Well worth the short out-of-the-way it took. We had walked down the road many years ago during RAGBRI. Different feeling starting down the road with my pickup - took some distance before I could actually see the road!

It was fun to drive down. You can only drive downhill. The street is short, but memorable. We visited in winter. It was a good time to take pictures.

It's much safer to walk the adjacent stairs than to drive (unless you have driven Lombard street in San Francisco.

We went to see it based on the fact it was in Ripley's believe it or not, but it's like I said above, "okay, saw it." Probably really pretty in spring when in full bloom.

The alley was hard to find as google map brought you to the end and a sign showed a direction but then it lead to nowhere. The town it is in has unique buildings. Not much open.

It is awesome to see this you can actually drive down it. Make sure you also see Cobblestone Alley just a few steps east of it.

Just plain old fun to walk up and down this street that is lined with Victorian and Prairie houses with quaint gardens. Little Kid fun as you are coming down this Snake!!!!! Whether in a car or on foot, this is definitely worth the experience!

Was a fun drive down this block of curvy, curvy street! Be sure to look it up and drive down it. At the top is a historic house. Also, the waterfront has beautiful views of bridge over Mississippi River.

This was a fun stop on our summer vacation. The "Alley" is only one block long, but we had fun walking it with all of its curves. Neat piece of history. The neighborhood around it is gorgeous with lots of historical homes.

Makes a great video and challenges the best driver! The bricks are beautiful and reminds one of days past.
