"Cable Cars" Cable Cars Tip by newsphotogirl

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 120 reviews and 143 photos

by newsphotogirl

The beginning of the cable car lines have enormous lines and long waits. But we went to the stop near our hotel and never had to wait and always found a place to stand/sit. So maybe it's easier if you get on a stop or two down the line. It's fun to watch the cars turn around at the end.
Our conductor was fun. The two times we rode the cable car we had the same guy. He got the crowd going and offered to take our picture, etc.

I've heard the Cable Car Museum is interesting though I've never been.
