San Francisco's famous cable cars (from other cities!)
Everyone loves the San Francisco cable cars. The classic trolley are cute relic of a time before buses and cars – and they give a great retro-style tour of the city's hills, and neighbourhoods: Union Square, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf and the other districts. However, besides the classic cable cars that the tourists hop on, there are cars belonging to the Muni system purchased or donated from all over the country and the world and it is fun to commute or get a ride in one of these classic vehicles!
