The San Francisco Cable Car is a well-known tourist attraction. The last manually operated cable car system in the world which was established in 1873 is still used today. It amazingly attracts more than 7 million annual passengers and tourists each year. If your schedule permits, try to visit the cable car museum to learn how it works. It is very fascinating! It is very unique because of the way it was built and the way it works. But also the look of an actual cable car is outstanding and can’t be confused with any other.
Having a few photos with the cable car in San Francisco is a must-have photo for those that visit the city and for those that live here as well. The San Francisco cable car always looks great through all seasons and at any time of a day. We believe that a person who lives in or visits San Francisco should have at least one photo taken with a cable car in the background. Please see the pictures below for more details.
