When Merriweather & Isabella Pleasure visited San Francisco during the roaring 20's, they fell in love with that city's Lombard Street. That road supposedly is the "world's crookedest street". Upon returning to Florida he recreated the street for his wife on the front side of Pleasure Island. (pictured above right). It leads from The Waterfront at the bottom to near Laffer's Cantina at the top.

Liking that idea, CityWalk (above left) built it's own version of Lombard Street. It carries visitors from NASCAR Cafe at the bottom to the CityWalk Food Court at the top. Also pictured (above right) is the real Lombard Street in SF. (Yes, today is a slow PI news day.)
