    Ready to go!

    They're nice to look at. They're even nicer to ride. If you're daring, take the running board and hang on tight.

    The cable cars from Powell are built to move in one direction only.
    At the end of the line, the conductor and the gripman have to rotate the car manually thanks to this "turntable"....

    It is a funny way to know the famous streets of San Francisco. The "driver" makes its own show!! But please, don't go inside!!

    Powell and Market Street is a good place to shop and you can catch the cable car here and take it to Fisherman's Warf.
    Very cute and right in the shopping center of San Francisco.

    No trip to San Francisco is complete without taking a ride on the infamous trolley cars! They provide a wonderful way to get a view of the neighborhoods and a taste of San Francisco's history.
