    A View of the Non-Stop Festival

    by

    In North Beach, with Chinatown, just across the street, this place is in easy reach of restaurants, theaters, shops, etc. Just out front is a bus stop.

    Unique Quality: San Francisco is like a non-stop party, which you can view from you window night & day.

    Directions: Where Columbus, Broadway, & Grant cross one another.

Anybody been on the motorized cable car tour?

Re: Tour

by TexasDave

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, either. The cable cars are not motorized- they are pulled along on a cable, thus their name. And they don't take tours, they are part of the city's transit system. There are about 4-5 different lines serving different areas of the city.

Re: Tour

by grandmaR

Apparently there is now a tour which uses an old (?) cable car that isn't on the cable but has a motor.

I haven't taken it.

Re: Tour

Yes there is indeed a motorized cable car tour. It is a bit chinchy, though as the "cable car" is a gimmick. Likely can do just as well on the London double decker bus. Good to see you David....d:o)

Re: Tour

by davesut

The motorized cable car tour is a 2 hour road based tour, departs from Fisherman's Wharf like the open top bus tours. It looks like a minibus coverted into a cable car, a SF gimmick no doubt to get people interested which I am. I can find loads of tips about the open top buses but none about this cable car style bus. Anybody been on it?

Travel Tips for San Francisco

Preparing for our Trip

by VeronicaG

One of the smartest things I did before our trip was to write to fellow VTer, CALLAVETTA, who lives in the San Francisco area and ask for advice on what to see or do there. Along with her suggestions and some extended research on my part, our family enjoyed a very exciting and fulfilling week!

Loaded down with two maps and a guidebook, we rode the trolley and cable car, cruised the Bay to Alcatraz and then Sausolito, traveled over the Golden Gate Bridge several times, rented a car to enjoy wine country and lastly experienced the beauty of Yosemite. The preparation was the key--we saw all that we had planned, plus a few added extras.

What to wear

by altizachen

If you want to know what the weather will be like when you come to visit… don’t watch the weather report. They’ll tell you it will be sunny and as soon as you step outside it’s foggy and rainy.

In San Francisco it’s best just to dress in layers since the weather is about as unpredictable as the people who live here. Many people come here thinking, "oh.. I'm gonna be in sunny Calfornia!" only to find themselves frozen like an Eskimo. Go down to Chinatown and by a few t-shirts for $10 and a few sweatshirts for $30. Bring your jacket from home.

Bundle up!

The cable car experience

by Skigirl

Hopping on a cable car and traveling up and down the hills of San Francisco. Riding the cable car at 11:30 pm from Nob Hill to Fisherman's Wharf to Union Square with all of the city lights and the bay as a back drop.

If you want to explore the...

by Kai112DE

If you want to explore the city inch by inch, bring some time... I would say a week or so is fine, and if you come by car... PARK IT! Driving thru the city is already a challenge and a tough job on ur brakes (try Divisadero all the way between Lombard and Haight or Jones descending from Nob Hill, just to mention a few...), plus you will not have the frustrating task to find a parking lot ( i circled around Nob Hill for almost 90 minutes at a friday nite, i think i know the location of every hydrant within a 2 mile radius there...)
So use BART, MUNI, CALTRAIN or whatever, take a bus or streetcar, or walk (can be quite an excercise...)
Also be prepared to spent more money than expected... it is very tempting, plus SF is not really a bargain, but still... I found every $$$ was worth spending, so make sure you got plenty of those ;)

by nikkio

Visit the Presidio National Park. It is a military base turned national park. This is where you can visit the Golden Gate Bridge. I really enjoy going to Alamo Square Park and looking out at the city. It is so beautiful and relaxing. You will also be able to see some of the 'Painted Ladies' -San Francisco's Victorian Houses. They are picture perfect.
