"Take a ride on the CABLE CAR -..." Cable Cars Tip by james_sinton

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 119 reviews and 138 photos

Take a ride on the CABLE CAR - It's old, it's authentic, it's fun, it's cheap and it's worth it.
The gripmen are absolutely hilarious, keeping the tourists in their place. The views can be pretty incredible and there is nothing on earth with that same bumpy whirring feel to it.

Address: Throughout the City
Directions: CALIFORNIA LINE - California & Market (at Embarcadero METRO). POWELL LINES - Powell & Market to either Bay & Taylor or Hyde & Beach.
othercontact: During the day, avoid the lines
