How can you not ride a cable car here? Go early but avoid the weekends. Start from Union Square and head up to California Street then down to the Bay. Lots of interesting architecture along the way.

These are kind of the Classic Cinema San Francisco and worth a quick ride. That usually crammed full a Taurus but a lot of the locals use them for in city transportation. What a lot of people don't know is it this place is famous for cable cars and Seattle is famous for ferry boats. But back in the day it was the other way around. However somebody saw that it was more practical to have cable cars in San Francisco and ferries in Seattle so they traded 1 bolt for one cable car. That's back when the boats were a lot smaller.

Lines were very long, routes were shortened due to road construction, However great experience to ride a moving national historic landmark. Driver was fun and entertaining. Kids loved it.

Love the clattering rides on this SF classic...! Unfortunately, they're not running these days due to COVID....When they do start again, the ride from the end of Fisherman's Wharf is very cool...You past the Crookedest St, etc....For a shorter wait, try the one from the Embarcadero, near the Hyatt...It goes to magnificent Grace Cathedral!
