"Historic Cable Cars" Cable Cars Tip by cheap_tourist
Cable Cars, San Francisco: 120 reviews and 143 photos
San Francisco has many icons. The cable car is probably just a notch below the Golden Gate Bridge in the pantheon of icons. Some people would place it at the top. A movie set in San Francisco will have the obligatory shot of the bridge and/or the cable car. They are that representative of the city.
If you just want to ride the cable car, take the California line, which is usually less crowded.
If you want to go to Fisherman's Wharf, take the cable car with the yellow "Bay and Taylor" sign. If you want to go to Aquatic Park, take the cable car with the brown "Hyde and Beach" sign. If you end up at the wrong place because you did not mind the sign, just walk. On the return trip, the last stop is at Market and Powell, regardless of where you started.
If you want to see the inner workings of the cable car system, go to the free Cable Car Museum at NW corner of Mason and Washington.
Address: 1201 Mason St. at Washington
