"Cable cars" Cable Cars Tip by shdw100

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 120 reviews and 143 photos


You cannot visit here without taking a cable car ride up and down the hills. There are not too many of them that run now, but the ones that do are cool. The conductors are fun to watch, as it is definately an art to be able to drive one. Riding one also gives you a good view of city life, shops and the feel for the city! Notice in the picture that all the cars are parked toward the curb, not sideways as it's too steep. The picture is taken looking towards Alcatraz
