World’s Steepest Street

By Linda Tancs

Dunedin, New Zealand boasts the world’s steepest residential street, with an average slope of 1:5.  Recognized by Guinness World Records, 1150-foot-long Baldwin Street gives any StairMaster a run for its money.  Good thing a water fountain greets you at the summit!  Best of all, though, it runs up Signal Hill, offering great views of Otago Harbor.  Together with the peninsula, Otago Harbor is home to some of the rarest wildlife in the world and New Zealand’s only castle, Larnach Castle.
