Owner description: Since 1873, cable cars have run up and down the hilly city, though after the 1950s, these cars have been kept in operation more out of historic nostalgia. Seventeen miles of track remain and have been deemed a historical landmark.

Great to use to travel to the wharf. It's a little pricey, $6 one way.

Living History...great sites and the cable car conductor we had was very friendly! Great way to get around the city at a reasonable price. Dislike the LONG line at the Fisherman's Wharf side waiting to board, but the people waiting in line were friendly and the street entertainer was pretty talented!

We did the 2 hour cable car tour from Pier 39. I would do it again it was sooo cool. But wear a coat! It's freezing...especially the closer you get to the bridge. Next time I'm sitting upstairs and wearing a heavy coat! It was great, and well worth the money. Takes you all over San Francisco, all the famous places. Have fun!

Go early for shorter lines. Buy an all day transportation pass to take advantage of on and off privileges and public transportation. It's a much better rate.
