About this photo

One of the best ways to get around in San Francisco as a tourist is by cable car. You can hop on and off at any point, which is worth knowing because the signposted stopping points often get crowded. You can stand on the side as well if there are not enough seats, and this often gives you the best view. The cable cars work by gripping a cable in the road which is moving and which then drags the car along with it. At the Cable Car Museum, you can learn more about how it works and look into the power house. In this photo you can see a small hill. San Francisco is famous for its hilly roads, and there are many that are much steeper and bigger than this, where the cars park side-on to minimize the risk of rolling.
