The San Francisco Cable Car Museum is a fun place to visit.  On display are antique cable cars and equipment, along with a viewing platform overlooking active machinery running the cable car lines.  Cable cars are a symbol for San Francisco, and are famous around the world.  They are so popular that they are featured on boxes of Rice-A-Roni, “The San Francisco Treat”!  Cable cars are our nation’s only mobile national monuments.  Every summer a bell-ringing contest is held for the incredibly strong gripmen who operate the cable cars by hand.  More info is at:

About Pam
