"You haven't been to SF until you've ridden one...." Cable Cars Tip by goshawk301
Cable Cars, San Francisco: 120 reviews and 143 photos
Yes! The Cable Car Ride is worth doing. There is the thrill of riding on a semi-open car, perhaps hanging precariously from the poles (the best eay), there is the beauty of the wood- and metalwork of the trolleys themselves, and the personality of the trolley conductor. It affords a unique and unforgettable view of the city. It is, also, a practical means of getting across the city - until the lines at the terminals get so long, your wait time would be longer than the ride!
So, if I were staying in the Union Square area and wanted to ride the cable car, I would do it as the first thing in the morning on a day when I plan to explore the northern waterfront of the city.
Address: 1201 Mason St. at Washington
